Officer Jason Van Dyke Shooting Laquan McDonald 16 times

Here is the video that the Chicago Police department released that shows the killing of Laquan McDonald by police officer Jason Van Dyke. Prosecutors are charging Van Dyke with murder in the killing.

The much-anticipated police dashboard cam video of a Chicago Police officer shooting and killing a 17-year-old was released Tuesday evening, offering a graphic and chilling view of what prosecutors say was first-degree murder.

The video of the slaying of Laquan McDonald was held by Chicago police for more than a year and finally released Tuesday after a judge ordered it. The release of the video touched off protests outside Chicago's Loop, but they remained peaceful as of 7 p.m.

A somber Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Supt. Garry McCarthy, in the moments before the video release, urged people to remain peaceful.

The video shows Officer Jason Van Dyke, 37, getting out of his squad and shooting McDonald multiple times. Authorities said he hit him 16 times, emptying his cartridge into the teen, including many shots while McDonald was on the ground.

Police union officials initially said McDonald lunged at them with a knife. The video shows McDonald holding a knife and spinning while walking down the middle of the street. It's unclear when the first shot hits him — before or after the spin.

Van Dyke turned himself in Tuesday morning, and a judge ordered him held without bond until at least Monday. He's expected to be held in protective custody.

The nearly 7-minute video begins as the squad car patrols the streets. The squad's flashing lights begin at around the 5-minute mark and at around 5:18 McDonald can be seen walking in the center of Pulaski Road.

Police approach and he can be seen being shot at around the 5:36 mark. A few seconds later, an officer can be seen kicking something away from McDonald's body. Puffs of smoke can be seen coming from the body around 5:43.

At a press conference at police headquarters at 3510 S. Michigan Ave., ahead of the video distribution to the media, Supt. McCarthy said, "In this case, we have a tragic ending to unfortunately a tragic life of a young man who was betrayed on a number of different levels."

As for Officer Van Dyke, who was charged with murder earlier Tuesday, "He's going to have to account for his actions."

Mayor Emanuel told reporters, "We hold our police officers to a high standard, and obviously in this case, Jason Van Dyke violated the standards of professionalism of becoming a police officer, but also basic moral standards that bind our community together."

"Anybody who is there to uphold the law cannot act like they are above the law," Emanuel said, adding Van Dyke "does not represent" typical police department behavior.

McDonald was shot and killed Oct. 20, 2014, at 41st and Pulaski in the Archer Heights neighborhood by Van Dyke. The city has already paid a $5 million settlement to the family for the shooting.

The city resisted releasing the video but last week a judge ruled that it had until Nov. 25 to release it. Attorneys for the McDonald family have called the video "graphic," "violent" and the shooting "unnecessary."

Dan Herbert, Van Dyke's lawyer, has said his client's actions "were not only lawful but also within department policy and within his training." His union has also said it "is standing by" Van Dyke.

McDonald was holding a knife at the time of the shooting and the drug PCP was found in his bloodstream, officials have said.

According to prosecutors, McDonald was stealing radios from trucks near 41st and Pulaski shortly before 10 p.m. on Oct. 20, 2014. When responding officers requested backup with a Taser, Van Dyke and his partner responded, Assistant State's Attorney William Delaney said during the bond hearing Tuesday. Neither Van Dyke nor his partner indicated they had a Taser.

Van Dyke was on the scene for less than 30 seconds before he stepped out of his marked SUV and started shooting at Laquan at 9:57 p.m., Delaney said. At the time, the teen was about 10 feet away.

Van Dyke took a step toward McDonald and continued to shoot, emptying his gun, prosecutors said. When Van Dyke paused to reload, his partner told him to stop shooting as the partner went to check on Laquan and kick away the teen's knife, Delaney said.

The partner could hear McDonald struggling to breathe, according to prosecutors. Though McDonald had a pulse on the scene, he was dead by the time he reached a nearby hospital.

There were at least eight other police officers on the scene, Delaney said, but none of them fired at Laquan because they didn't think there was a reason to do so.

Authorities said McDonald was carrying a knife with a 3-inch folding blade. At one point, he slashed the tire of a police car, but witnesses said McDonald never lunged at officers and appeared to be trying to get away from police when Van Dyke shot him, Delaney said.

Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez on Tuesday, in an earlier press conference, said the impending release of dash-cam footage pushed up her timeline to file charges.

It's the first time, to Alvarez's knowledge, a Chicago police officer has been charged with murder for an on-duty shooting.

The state's attorney has taken heat for waiting more than a year to charge Van Dyke. Alvarez said she's been planning to file charges "for weeks" but moved forward earlier than planned after a Cook County judge ordered the city to release footage of the fatal shooting by Wednesday.

Following a brief bond hearing, Cook County Judge Donald Panarese Jr. on Tuesday ordered Van Dyke held without bail until Monday — when Panarese will re-visit the matter after he's had a chance to review the infamous dash-cam footage.

"I'm sorry," Panarese told Van Dyke, who stood before him in faded jeans and a pea-green sweatshirt. "I'm going to have to hold you no bail until Monday."

In the dashboard-board camera video, one can see puffs of smoke that were later identified as clouds of debris caused by fired bullet, Delaney said.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office determined that two of McDonald's 16 gunshot wounds were inflicted while the teen was standing. A third shot can definitely be linked to a time when McDonald was on the ground, Delaney said.

McDonald was shot in his scalp, neck, left chest, right chest, left elbow, left forearm, right upper arm, right hand, right upper leg, left upper back and right lower back.

On Tuesday, McDonald's family, in a statement, said, "We ask for calm in Chicago."

"No one understands the anger more than us but if you choose to speak out, we urge you to be peaceful. Don't resort to violence in LaQuan's name. Let his legacy be better than that," the statement read.

The family's attorneys said the family did not want to see it released: "What mother would want to see the execution of her son over and over?" attorney Jeffrey Neslund said. But journalists, activists and the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois pressed the courts to make the video public.

McCarthy addressed potential trouble in reaction to the video's release, saying, "People have a right to be angry, people have a right to protest, people have a right to free speech, but they do not have a right to commit criminal acts."

Re: Officer Jason Van Dyke Shooting Laquan McDonald

He seemed to have his left hand in his pocket and as he spun around he took it out. It appears they shot him again when he was on the floor, I need the facts really.

He had a knife. They kicked it away near the end. Just stupid on both parts.

Re: Officer Jason Van Dyke Shooting Laquan McDonald

I'm still waiting on an indictment on the Tamir Rice murder. May never happen. It took 10 months for this joker to finally get off the police department's payroll after doing this, if you can believe that.

Re: Officer Jason Van Dyke Shooting Laquan McDonald

WOW. You can't really see who is shooting, (and I have no sound on this video) but it looks like the firing ceased for a second and then they finished him off.

I mean, what cop is so panicked that they unload 16 rounds.

That's on par with some angry Brazil drugdealer shit.

99.9% of the time I side with the cops, but I'm not sure I can on this one. Yes the kid was a drugged up piece of shit carrying a knife and vandalizing cars...but the officer shot him 16 times, two in the back...as the kid was walking away.

It's cops like this that fuck things up for the ones who really are in fear for their lives when a shooting occurs.

Before the family even filed a lawsuit, the City offered them 5 million last year.

Officer Jason Van Dyke was ordered held without bond Tuesday in the shooting death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald.

In court, prosecutors laid out their case against Van Dyke, claiming of eight responding officers, he was the only one who felt inclined to use force — and use it 16 times.

The documents provided by prosecutors describe an exchange between Van Dyke and his partner after the officer shot at McDonald 16 times over about 15 seconds. The partner is identified as Officer A:

"Officer A reported that there was a brief pause in the shots when he looked at defendant and saw that he was preparing to reload his weapon. Officer A could hear McDonald struggling to breathe, told defendant to hold his fire."
