NYPD releases bodycam footage of fatal police shooting

The NYPD on Friday released officer body-camera footage of a fatal police-involved shooting on Staten Island.

he recording was the first to be released by the department under its new requirement mandating that footage of “critical” incidents be made public within 30 days of their occurrence.
