Video released of Chicago cop fatally shooting Ronald Johnson

CHICAGO — The Cook County State’s Attorney has released the dash cam footage from a 2014 incident that shows Chicago police fatally shooting a black man and said there will be no criminal charges against the officer who opened fire.

During a Monday afternoon press conference, Anita Alvarez played video for reporters showing 25-year-old Ronald Johnson shot while fleeing police.

Police said during the October 2014 incident, Johnson was armed and pointed a gun at police, a claim the Johnson family has disputed. Officer George Hernandez fired five times on Johnson, striking him twice.
