In spite of the fact that a Black man was unarmed when Akron police shot and killed him in a flurry of bullets while pursuing him on foot, officers thought the man had shot at them earlier from a moving car and worried he was about to reload, according to authorities. Police in Akron, Ohio, released a video of the pursuit and death of Jayland Walker, 25, on Sunday. The mayor begged the public for calm and patience while describing the shooting as “heartbreaking.” Check further details of the matter in the article below.

Walker received more than 60 wounds, while it was unclear how many shots were fired by the eight participating cops. Walker was allegedly on the ground when police officers continued to fire, according to an attorney for Walker’s family. After the video was made public, protesters marched around the city and assembled in front of the Akron justice building. Walker’s passing, according to NAACP President Derrick Johnson in a statement “was a homicide, without a doubt”

For unknown traffic and equipment violations, police tried to pull over Walker’s car early on Monday. However, less than a minute into the pursuit, the sound of a shot was heard coming from the car, and a transportation department camera captured what appeared to be a muzzle flash, according to Akron Police Chief Steve Mylett. Because of that, the case’s character was altered from “a normal traffic check to now a public safety problem, “added he.

A short while later, the car slowed, and Walker, who was wearing a ski mask, emerged from the still-moving vehicle and ran away on foot, according to the police. On the seat, police discovered a handgun, a filled magazine, and a wedding band. Later, they discovered a handgun case close to where they thought a shot had come from the car. The foot chase continued to a parking lot after an unsuccessful attempt to employ stun guns, where a crescendo of gunfire can be heard.

Walker’s activities are difficult to see on the video, according to Mylett, who claims to have watched it numerous times. However, a still image appears to show him “moving down to his waist area” and another looks to show him turning toward the officer. Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost vowed a complete, fair, and expert investigation. The officers involved in the shooting have reportedly been placed on paid administrative leave.
