The Independent Police Review Authority released graphic cell phone videos and 911 calls Wednesday that revealed the disorderly scene that unfolded when an off-duty cop shot and killed Joshua Beal in Chicago last year, reports CBS Chicago.
Evidence shows that a fight erupted between the 25-year-old Beal and the police officer, with Beal’s family members and a local firefighter also getting involved in the Mount Greenwood scuffle-turned-shooting last November, writes the news outlet:
Around 3 p.m. on Nov. 5, an off-duty police officer became involved in an altercation with Beal and several relatives who had just been at a funeral. The off-duty officer, who is white, called 911, saying his car was surrounded, and that someone was going to get shot.
“I am an off-duty police officer. I’m getting attacked by about 12 mother f****** in the car,” he said.
Minutes later, shots were fired, and Beal – who is black – laid dying on the streets.
The shooting of Beal triggered more racial tensions and sparked weeks-long protests in Mount Greenwood, reports DNAinfo Chicago.
