Transcript for Chicago Authorities Release Bodycam Video of Police Shootout
We will. In other news authorities in Chicago are releasing body cam video showing a wild shoot-out between police and a suspect. Violent night with a very violent ending and Marci Gonzalez is here with that. Marci, good morning. Reporter: Yeah, it shows a massive response from the police department. Dozens of officers swarming the scene as those shots were fired. The recordings just made public by Chicago's independent police review authority as they investigate. This morning, newly released body cam videos show the dramatic gun battle. A suspect on the run. He went to the front of the building. Reporter: Shooting at police. Officers firing back. Shots fired. Reporter: More than two dozen gunshots exchanged as police try to capture a man they say shot his pregnant girlfriend in the abdomen killing their unborn child. She just said she got shot. She was holding the pillow over her stomach. Yeah. Reporter: The suspect Richard Grimes killed in the November shoot-out. He's down. He's down. Reporter: At least two officers injured including this one dropping behind his squad car after the suspect fired. The recordings released before the deadline of a new city policy calling for videos of police shootings to be made public within 60 days. The push for transparency following the shooting death of laquan McDonald in 2014. The dash cam video not released until more than a year later. That sparking a department of justice investigation finding systemic problems within the police department. In a city plagued by violence. After Chicago's most violent year in two decades already this year nearly 270 people have been shot, 42 people killed. And just this week city leaders announced a new effort to help combat crime using advanced technology to detect gunshots as they're fired and quickly lead police to the location. They're also adding more surveillance cameras in some neighborhoods just a part of the city's plan to try to turn things around. Things so dangerous. All right, Marci, thanks so much.
