Bodycam video released of fatal police shooting of Maurice Granton Jr.


The Civilian Office of Police Accountability (COPA) released bodycam video of the fatal police shooting of 24-year-old Maurice Granton Jr., who was shot while fleeing from officers June 6 in Bronzeville.

Through their attorneys, Granton's family called for the release of all video and audio in connection to the incident, saying in their opinion he should still be alive.

According to WGN-TV News, Police said officers were attempting to question Granton after spotting him taking part in an alleged illegal drug transaction, and he then ran from police. As he was fleeing, authorities said he "produced a weapon" and was shot by an officer.
