New surveillance video shows officer-involved shooting

Members of New Haven’s clergy spent Monday morning meeting with the state’s attorney’s office, looking for answers surrounding last week’s officer-involved shooting.

The shooting happened early last Tuesday morning in the area of Argyle Street and Dixwell Avenue.

A Hamden and a Yale police officer were both involved in the shooting that happened.

Hamden police crossed into New Haven, looking for a car allegedly involved in an attempted armed robbery.

Since the shooting happened, members of the community have been holding rallies and protests, and even shutting down the streets.

Video sent to Channel 3 by a viewer shows Hamden Officer Devon Eaton firing his gun at a car matching the description.

A new version of surveillance video from Believe In Me Empowerment Corporation, showing a better perspective of when the driver got out of the car.

Police said before shots were fired, the driver, Paul Witherspoon, of the car got out of the car in an aggressive manner.

Another video, shows Yale police Officer Terrance Pollack also firing.

Both are now on administrative leave.
