Bodycam footage shows fatal officer-involved shooting of William Debose
Denver DA won’t charge officer who shot, killed William Debose
DA Beth McCann said the officer acted in self-defense after Debose pulled out a gun and pointed it at officers.
The district attorney’s office has declined to file charges against the Denver police officer who shot and killed William DeBose. Police say DeBose pointed a loaded weapon at them. Denver District Attorney Beth McCann released the body worn camera video Thursday.
“Stay right there, for me, both of your hands up in the air,” a police officer is heard yelling on the video.
The police body camera video appears to show William DeBose take off following what appeared to be a traffic stop. The police officer runs after him. A version released shows a circle around what is believed to be DeBose taking a gun out, then pointing at the officer chasing him who yells, “Put your hands on the ground now! Now!” Source
