Adam turns counter-clockwise as his right hand comes from behind the fence. His hands are raised and he is shot. The flashlight from the officer illuminates Adam’s raised hands and it is unclear whether there is a gun in his right hand, as Chicago Police say, or a shadow created by the light. A enhanced video released by Chicago police shows what they say is a gun in Adam’s right hand before he made a pivot toward the officer.
Based on the positioning of his right arm, it is possible that Adam dropped the gun behind the fence (where it was found) before turning to face the officer. The Toledo family attorney said Thursday that Adam did not have a gun in his hand when he was shot.MORE NEWS: 3 Killed In Starved Rock Explosion Last Week Identified
