NLRPD releases dashcam video showing deadly officer-involved shooting of teen

Since the shooting, police have released dash cam video. "I want our young people to feel comfortable as well and not be fearful", Davis said, according to KATV.

Davis shared little new information regarding the ongoing investigation during the news conference.

On Sunday, officers initiated a traffic stop shortly after 1 a.m. near the intersection of 52nd Street and Camp Robinson Road, according to police.

Davis said the auto was traveling at "excessive speeds" with a broken headlight.

The chief said responding officers expressed concern over the "nervousness" of the driver while speaking with him.

A patrolman told the driver to get out of the auto before asking, "You ain't got anything insane on you, do you?" followed by '"Why were you driving so dang-gummed fast, man?" Police were reportedly patting down Charles and others in the vehicle when they said they spotted a gun.

Davis said a stolen firearm also was later found on the driver's-side floorboard.


"As officers continued to pat him down, Smith attempted to gain control of a handgun and flee, at which time he was taken to the ground", Davis said.

Police in Little Rock, Arkansas, released disturbing dashcam video capturing the chilling moment a teen suspect was fatally shot to death after firing a gun on police.

Police Chief Mike Davis hopes that the footage will dispel "misinformation" that 17-year-old Charles Smith was unarmed during the traffic stop early Sunday. Then another shot is fired, narrowly missing the face of an officer.

As seen in the video, the three officers returned fire, killing Smith who was later pronounced dead at the scene.

An attorney for the Smith family released a statement requesting the District Attorney's office to conduct an investigation into the use of deadly force.

"We're not at a point where we can make any conclusions", he told Arkansas Online. Merritt said North Little Rock police told him that additional dashboard video footage does exist, and he'd like to see it. Dedrick said previously that three officers were placed on paid leave, the procedure most law enforcement agencies follow in officer-involved shootings. "How would you like them?" the officer stated, gabbing amid a search.

"Deception gets out that says ... the subject wasn't outfitted, the subject didn't shoot", Davis said. "He was armed and we, in fact, had to take action because of that".
