Video Shows D.C. Police Firing One Fatal Shot at Suspected Gunman

Law&Crime Network published this video item, entitled “Video Shows D.C. Police Firing One Fatal Shot at Suspected Gunman” – below is their description.

A Washington, D.C. officer-involved shooting is now under investigation by the Metropolitan Police Department after bodycam footage shows an officer fatally shooting a suspected gunman. Police responded to an alleged shootout that left two pedestrians injured and pursued a vehicle that fled the scene. When the car crashed, police say three suspects immediately fled and the fourth suspect was pursued by the responding officer. Authorities say the officer can be heard yelling “gun” multiple times before firing one fatal shot at the suspect. However, investigators say the bodycam footage does not show the suspect holding a gun at the time of the shooting. Police say a firearm was recovered from the suspect but it is unclear whether he brandished it at the time of the shooting. The suspect was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. The man’s family disputes the officer’s report, stating they believe he was shot in the back of the head without warning and wasn’t given adequate medical care.

TikTok, known in China as Douyin, is a Chinese video-sharing social networking service owned by ByteDance, a Beijing-based Internet technology company founded in 2012 by Zhang Yiming. It is used to create short music, lip-sync, dance, comedy and talent videos of 3 to 15 seconds, and short looping videos of 3 to 60 seconds.

ByteDance first launched Douyin for the Chinese market in September 2016. Later, TikTok was launched in 2017 for iOS and Android in most markets outside of mainland China; however, it only became available worldwide, including the United States, after merging with another Chinese social media service on 2 August 2018.
