Chicago police on Thursday released body-camera video footage showing an officer shooting and killing a 13-year-old boy in an alley more than two weeks ago.

The nine-minute video began by showing an unidentified police officer getting out of his squad car and running after Adam Toledo in an alley at 2:30am on March 29 in Little Village, a neighbourhood on the city’s West Side.

The video then showed the officer yelling “stop” to Toledo before he caught up to him and ordered him to show him his hands.

Toledo appeared to raise his hands right before the officer fired one shot and then immediately ran to the boy as he fell to the ground.

“Shots fired, shots fired. Get an ambulance over here now,” the officer is heard saying in the video.
