Dash cam video released of officer shooting teenager

Posted: Updated:
BATTLE CREEK, MI (WNEM) -

Battle Creek police have released dash cam video from the officer shooting of a 14-year-old boy.

Back in November, police were called to a party store after reports of a man carrying a gun.

In the video, you can see the officer arrive on the scene and jump out of his car, yelling commands for the teen to drop the weapon.

When he doesn't, the officer fires, hitting him in the shoulder. What the officer didn't know was that the teen was carrying an airsoft gun.

Prosecutors have cleared the officer of wrong doing but the victim's family is still planning a lawsuit.
