Police video shows gunfire, chase in Baltimore shooting

BALTIMORE (AP) — Video from a camera worn by a Baltimore police officer shows officers fired their weapons for nearly a minute last month after a suspect flashed his gun twice as he led them on a vehicle chase.

News outlets report police released the video Friday. Authorities recovered more than 150 shell casings from the scene.

Thirty-year-old Tyrone Domingo Banks was pronounced dead at a hospital after the Aug. 28 shooting. Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison says the department hasn’t determined whether Banks fired his weapon.

Police say the 13 officers who fired their weapons will remain on administrative duties during the investigation.

Police have said Banks earlier that week tried to run over an officer and fired at another before escaping when a police chase was stopped upon reaching a highway.
