Police reports filed after Laquan McDonald's shooting show officers initially gave a version of events that don't appear to match up with dashcam video.
Jason Van Dyke, the Chicago police officer accused of shooting the teenager 16 times, told investigators McDonald was approaching him with a knife.
Van Dyke said he was "swinging the knife in an aggressive, exaggerated manner" and that he "raised the knife across chest."
