VIDEO: Sacramento Mayor Promises Police Reform After Footage Released of Fatal July OIS
Sacramento police on Tuesday released video that shows a mentally ill man running from police officers, then stopping to gesture at them before they shot and killed him in July.
The police released the video and related audio hours after The Sacramento Bee posted surveillance video of the incident it had obtained earlier Tuesday.
Sacramento City Council members viewed the footage released by police in closed session Tuesday night. During the public portion of the meeting, Mayor Kevin Johnson promised to propose a set of police oversight reforms in coming days, the Sacramento Bee reports.
