New Video of Fatal Police Shooting in Nashville Sparks Outrage

posted by Savannah - 

The fatal police shooting of Daniel Hambrick in North Nashville made national news Thursday morning, after District Attorney Glenn Funk released a new video of the incident.

The video comes from a surveillance camera at MLK Magnet School, and shows the final moments of a foot chase. Officer Andrew Delke -- who has been placed on administrative leave -- can be seen firing his weapon as Hambrick runs away after a traffic stop. 

You can watch the video below, but just be warned that it's disturbing.

"We all want to know what happened on the 26th of July," Mayor David Briley said at a press conference regarding the TBI's investigation of the shooting. "This video will shed some light on those circumstances, but it won't certainly be the last information that our community receives. Getting to the bottom of this is very important. It's equally important that while we pass time waiting for the investigation to be complete that we be patient," he concluded.

Although the Metro Nashville Police Department tweeted a photo of a gun allegedly carried by Hambrick at the time of the incident, three former Metro Police officers -- who spoke on the condition of anonymity and are trained on the use of deadly force -- told WSMV that the newly released footage does not provide enough proof that deadly force was necessary.
