Oakland police release body-cam video of 2015 fatal shooting

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Police Department released body camera footage of the 2015 fatal shooting of man by police officer that led the city to pay $1.2 million to settle a lawsuit by the victim’s family.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports officers encountered 30-year-old Demouria Hogg on June 6, 2015 on an off-ramp of Interstate 580. Police said Hogg was passed out in the driver’s seat next to a gun.

In the video released Monday, Officer Nicole Rhodes’ body camera shows her pointing her gun to the car as another officer smashes the window. She shouts “Hey, don’t move. Don’t move” and then fires two rounds as another officer deploys a Taser.

Police then pull Hogg’s body out of the smashed window and begin rendering aid on the street.
