Authorities released videos from the moments after a Black man was allegedlyby an off-duty deputy in North Carolina. The three videos showing the aftermath of the fatal shooting of Jason Walker were made public after a judge earlier they could be released.
In one video, officers appear to be standing at the scene — a red truck is visible in the background and multiple people are standing around as medics appear to be treating Walker on the ground. They are speaking to people who said they witnessed the shooting. One man says Walker jumped on the hood of the red truck before the driver shot him. Another man says he is the victim’s father.
In the second video, also taken at the scene, the man who identified himself as Walker’s father says his son was in a nearby yard before the shooting. He said he tried to get his son to come back but instead he ran into the street and jumped on the truck’s dash before he was shot.
The third video shows an officer asking a man and woman what they saw. The woman identified herself as a nurse and said she had blood on her hands from trying to render medical aid.
According to the woman, the driver of the SUV shot at Walker while he was on the ground. She said it was unclear if the SUV struck Walker or if Walker had jumped on the car. The woman said she didn’t see any threat from Walker and “he didn’t have anything on him.”
