Chicago Police Dept. (CHICAGO) — Body camera footage of the fatal Chicago police shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo was released Thursday by the city’s Civilian Office of Police Accountability.The March 29 footage shows an unidentified officer chasing Toledo down a street. The officer yells, “Police! Stop. Stop right f—ing now. Hands — show me your f—ing hands now. Drop it!” As the officer tells Toledo to “drop it” again, Toledo puts both of his hands up, and the officer shoots the teen in the chest.Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney James Murphy initially claimed that Toledo had a gun in his hands, but Cook County State’s Attorney spokesperson Sarah Sinovic later told ABC News that Murphy “failed to fully inform himself before speaking in court” and that “the video speaks for itself.”“When Adam was told the directive by that officer — ‘Hands, show me your hands’ — Adam surrendered, obeyed the directive, turned to the officer with his hands in the air, empty at the time that he was shot,” Adeena Weiss-Ortiz, the family’s attorney, told ABC News in an interview Thursday evening.“Officers cannot point the gun and kill a child who is unarmed and surrenders to that officer,” she added.Earlier at a Thursday press conference about the body camera footage, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot would not say whether Toledo had a gun in his hand, but she did confirm that Toledo did not shoot at any of the officers.Police were dispatched just before 3 a.m. after the department’s ShotSpotter detected gunshots on the city’s West Side in the early hours of the morning. A ShotSpotter is a gun detection system with sensors that can identify and alert officials of potential gunshots.Police then encountered two male subjects: Toledo and a 21-year-old man, Ruben Roman. When the two ran, officers pursued them.Roman was arrested on felony charges of reckless discharge of a firearm, unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and child endangerment.Lightfoot gave a press conference to send condolences to Toledo’s family and promise a change in Chicago policing.“We can’t afford to lose more lives. As mayor, I know that we must do more to help children like Adam before they end up in encounters like this one,” Lightfoot said.She added that she will seek to reform the current police policy on foot pursuits, but did not specify what policy.“Foot pursuits put everyone involved at risk: officers, the person being pursued and bystanders. We have to do better,” Lightfoot said.COPA agreed to hold the release of the video at the request of Toledo’s family, who saw the footage on Tuesday. A statement from the law firm representing the family said the “experience was extremely difficult and heartbreaking for everyone present and especially for Adam’s family.”“As you can imagine, it was extremely difficult for them to view the final moments of their son’s passing at the hands of this officer,” Weiss-Ortiz told ABC News.“When the point in the video came, when the officer shot Adam, mom gasped,” she continued. “She began breaking down, crying, as well as the father, began breaking down, crying, and the eldest son was consoling his father and the eldest daughter was consoling her mother. I think more tragic was watching the life slowly leave Adam’s body during the efforts to revive.”City policy requires that body cam footage be released within 60 days of an incident. COPA also released third-party video of the incident, ShotSpotter recordings, Office of Emergency Management and Communications transmissions, as well as use-of-force and arrest reports.The Toledo family’s lawyers said they are conducting an investigation of their own into his death.“We are continuing to conduct our own investigation as we seek justice for Adam and his family,” the lawyers said in a statement. “We are meeting with representatives of the city of Chicago and will have no further comment on the facts in the case at this time.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Former British and Irish Lions captain O’Driscoll will be charged with lobbying for support as Ireland start to add substance to their 2023 bid. “This is a very exciting opportunity for Ireland and, while competition will be fierce for what is one of the most prized events in world sport, we will leave no stone unturned in putting together a world-class case for Ireland,” said IRFU chief executive Philip Browne. The Irish Government and Northern Ireland executive have already backed Ireland’s 2023 bid, that was launched in December. Gaelic Games stadia like Croke Park will be vital to Ireland’s bid, and the addition of Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) chief Duffy to the board further underscores the strength of the Irish preparations. South Africa, Italy and France have all joined Ireland in publicly announcing their aim to land the 2023 global gathering, while the United States could yet join those ranks. Former Ireland star Dick Spring will chair the oversight board, with Dr David Dobbin named chief executive. Hugo MacNeill and IRFU chief executive Browne will join the board, with former British and Irish Lions captain O’Driscoll named bid ambassador. Ulster chief executive Shane Logan and Duffy complete the first raft of board nominations, with the GAA director general’s presence further indication the Irish can utilise traditional Gaelic Games venues to bolster their bid. Test rugby’s most-capped player has agreed to assume the chief cheerleader role for the 2023 campaign, after joining Ireland’s newly-formed bid board. Gaelic Games boss Paraic Duffy has been named on the Irish Rugby Football Union’s (IRFU) World Cup oversight board, a further pledge that grounds like Croke Park would host action should Ireland stage the 2023 tournament. World Rugby officially opened up the bidding process on Thursday, confirming they will now accept receipt of expressions of interest to host World Cup 2023. Member unions now have until June 15 to lodge their initial application, with the host not selected until May 2017. A phased bidding process means detailed tender information will not be sent to interested unions until May 2016, with final bids to be lodged by June next year. World Rugby will invite interested unions to a two-day workshop in London on June 4 and 5 this year, to help streamline the first step in the bidding process. Brian O’Driscoll will flex his superstar muscle to boost Ireland’s battle to host Rugby World Cup 2023. Press Association
Transfer Deadline Day: Hull City splash out but Radamel Falcao move to Manchester United makes headlines
Hull City were the most active Barclays Premier League club on transfer deadline day – but it was Manchester United’s loan signing of Radamel Falcao which proved the headline grabber.While Steve Bruce brought Abel Hernandez, Mohamed Diame, Gaston Ramirez and Hatem Ben Arfa to the KC Stadium, United had to work into the small hours to finalise the signing of the Monaco striker on a season-long loan.Despite details of the move emerging early in the day, United had to have an extension past the 11pm deadline to ensure the necessary documents were correctly filed with the Premier League.They eventually announced Falcao’s signing, which has an option to make the move permanent, at 1.30am, a deal which took United’s summer spending past £150million.By that time, Arsenal had confirmed United striker Danny Welbeck had joined them, for a reported fee of £16million, after Falcao’s arrival made his chances of regular first-team football even more remote.And the presence of the Colombia international at the club’s training complex late on Monday also spelled the end for Javier Hernandez, who earlier in the day joined Real Madrid on loan with a view to a permanent move. United will pay Monaco between £5million and £6million for Falcao and will cover his wages, although they insist reports they will pay the 28-year-old almost £350,000 a week are wide of the mark.”I am delighted Radamel has joined us on loan this season,” said manager Louis van Gaal.”He is one of the most prolific goalscorers in the game.”His appearance-to-goal ratio speaks for itself and, when a player of this calibre becomes available, it is an opportunity not to be missed.”The grand total spent in the summer window comfortably exceeds a new high of £800million and while the majority of that was spent by those chasing Champions League football, Hull made a serious statement of intent in the closing hours. Manager Bruce started by bringing in Hernandez from Palermo in a club-record deal thought to total £9.5million, added fellow Uruguay international Ramirez on a season-long loan from Southampton and also persuaded West Ham midfielder Diame to pen a £3.5million deal.But the Tigers were not finished there and sprung a late surprise by making a move for the Magpies’ out-of-favour playmaker Ben Arfa.He was pictured high-fiving fans as he arrived at the club and, having secured an extension beyond the initial 11pm deadline, Hull finalised the move for a player who had been frozen out at St James’ Park.”Thankfully everything has come together, but the one that has come in the last few hours was Ben Arfa,” Bruce told Sky Sports News HQ.”Whatever’s happened at Newcastle has happened. He wants to come here and play and get his career kickstarted again. “Hopefully I can bring the best out of him and we can reignite him.”Bruce had earlier sanctioned the sale of George Boyd to Burnley, who also secured Chelsea’s Nathan Chalobah for the rest of the campaign.Champions Manchester City were not in the market for new signings but did let two first-teamers leave.Striker Alvaro Negredo, who scored 23 goals in his maiden season at the Etihad Stadium, has returned to Spain in a season-long loan at Valencia, who will then complete a permanent deal for around £15million.Defender Micah Richards, the club’s longest-serving player with 245 appearances to his name, has also admitted defeat in his attempt to impress Manuel Pellegrini by signing on loan at Serie A side Fiorentina until the end of the campaign. QPR’s bid to sign Fabio Borini from Liverpool collapsed despite the clubs settling on an initial £10million fee with the Italian failing to agree personal terms.Rangers boss Harry Redknapp was also frustrated in his attempts to bring Jermain Defoe back from Toronto but was reunited with midfielders Sandro, signed from Tottenham on a three-year deal, and Niko Kranjcar, who took a large pay cut to join on loan from Dynamo Kiev.Spurs immediately replaced Sandro with Montpellier’s Benjamin Stambouli.Borini now looks set for an extended period on the Anfield sidelines, but Brendan Rodgers did send Sebastian Coates and Oussama Assaidi out on loan to Sunderland and Stoke respectively.The Black Cats also added Ricardo Alvarez from Inter Milan until the end of the season, with Modibo Diakite released and Valentin Roberge loaned to Reims. Southampton’s turbulent transfer window wrapped up with further additions, highly-rated Atletico Madrid centre-back Toby Alderweireld in on loan and Salzburg’s £10million-rated forward Sadio Mane penning a four-year deal.Saints terminted the loan of Inter’s Saphier Taider less than a month after his arrival.Crystal Palace signed James McArthur from Wigan for a deal understood to be pushing £7million, plus Kevin Doyle on loan from Wolves and sent Glenn Murray to Reading.
