Mayor Suthers supports release of body camera video in fatal weekend shooting

KOAA News5 (Colorado Springs): Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers says he supports the release of police body-worn camera video that captured Saturday’s deadly officer-involved shooting.

News 5 Investigates obtained surveillance video from the scene showing what unfolded a few seconds prior to the suspect collapsing in the middle of the street.

However, the video does not show what transpired in the minutes leading up to the shooting. There are still a lot of “unknowns”.

“The fact of the matter is little snippets (clips) don’t give the whole picture,” Mayor Suthers said. “I would ask the public to please wait and hear the whole story because I think you’ll get a pretty good picture of everything that happened in this case.”
