(CBS) –The views from the four, new police dash cams gives a broader look at what led up to the minutes right before and after Laquan McDonald’s shooting.
That includes perspective from officer Jason Van Dyke’s camera, who is now charged with first degree murder in the case.
Blurry video from their dash cam shows officer Jason Van Dyke and his partner are parked near a Southwest Side convenience store at 9:53 p.m. on Oct. 20, 2014. Less than a minute later, they adjust the camera, turn on the lights and speed toward 41st and Pulaski. They continue to drive for three minutes. When their car turns, you see another police vehicle and then, seconds later, Laquan McDonald run through a Burger King parking lot in front of them. Van Dyke’s car drives over a sidewalk and follows him.
Video from another police car shows Van Dyke’s vehicle driving alongside a fleeing McDonald for a few seconds before it pulls around a parked police car and stops.
About eight seconds later, based on the time stamp in all dashcam vehicles, Van Dyke shoots McDonald in the street as he was walking away from the officers.
Right as Van Syke opened fire, his dashcam shows more officers pull up, get out of their squad car and slowly walk towards the teen, who, based on the time stamp again, is on the ground, still under fire. The officers walk out of frame as the shooting stops.
As McDonald lies in the street, video shows another police car drives up and stop. The more than half a dozen officers at the scene are standing by.
Video from yet another police car then shows what appears to be an ambulance at the scene, six minutes after Van Dyke opened fire.
Officer Van Dyke is now charged with first-degree murder in the case. He’s being held without bond.
