Aurora police to release body camera footage of officer shooting 14-year-old Jor’Dell Richardson

The Denver Post: Aurora police on Friday will release body camera footage showing an officer fatally shooting a 14-year-old boy suspected of participating in a robbery of a convenience store.

Family members of the 14-year-old, Jor’Dell Richardson, and their lawyers watched the footage at Aurora police headquarters Tuesday, police officials and family representatives said.

State law mandates that law enforcement agencies wait 72 hours after showing body camera footage to the family of someone killed by police before releasing it publicly. Aurora police Chief Art Acevedo will hold a news conference Friday when the video is released, according to a news release.
