More than three years after 17-year-old Cedrick Chatman was shot and killed by Chicago police, the city has released video of the shooting to the public.
The altercation captured on camera is only about 20 seconds long, but it does show Chatman running away from officers before being shot.
The officer who shot Chatman, Kevin Fry, claims Chatman turned toward him with a dark object in his hand, and that's what caused him to fear for his life. The object turned out to be a black iPhone box.
