The DC Metropolitan Police Department has released the body camera footage of the fatal officer involved shooting of Deon Kay.
At approximately 3:51 p.m., uniformed police officers responded to a call to investigate a man in a vehicle with a gun. When they arrived, they found four people in the vehicle. Two of them fled, including Kay.
During the chase, Kay brandished a firearm.
At this point, an officer fired one single shot, hitting Kay in the chest. The suspect was transported to the hospital for treatment, but it was unsuccessful.
A photo of his gun recovered at the scene has also been released by the police department:
As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, Kay’s social media featured him and a friend pointing guns at the camera.
Do you think the police were justified?
The two people who remained in the vehicle, Marcyelle Smith and Deonte Brown, were arrested.
Smith, 19, also had a handgun. He was charged with carrying a pistol without a license.
The other suspect who fled with Kay has not yet been apprehended.
Despite this being a clearly justified shooting, Black Lives Matter protested at the police department and at DC Mayor Muriel Bowser’s home, before all the information was even made public.
