Little Rock Releases Video of Officer-Involved Shooting

2019-03-08 17:38
The Little Rock Police Department released footage Thursday, March 7, from a deadly officer-involved shooting which shows the officer on the hood of a car firing at least 15 times into the windshield. Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott said the department, along with an outside marketing group, compiled dashcam footage, video from nearby businesses’ security cameras and radio traffic from the Feb. 22 incident. Scott said none of the videos are edited, and repeatedly asked the public to remain calm and trust in due process. Police said Starks was responding to a call after a detective confirmed the car Blackshire was driving was stolen. In the videos, almost immediately after Blackshire’s car backs into a space in a parking lot, a police SUV arrives with lights on and stops nearby. Starks then walks to the driver’s side window with his gun drawn and instructs Blackshire to get out of the car multiple times.
