Thanks so much for joining us Trevor what's the latest on the investigation into Mike highest death. Dot thanks for having me Lindsay today we got a few different war. Well rounded views of what hap they'd be in the shooting one of them that surveillance footage from the neighbor across the street he was a witness albeit. Hearing the shots but his security cameras captured the incident as it unfolded. And another video was released by the city police and those are the dash cam videos from the officers as they arrived on scene and it is worth noting Lindsay. There wasn't a lot of new information revealed by these new videos because the city and the police department took that unprecedented step she released some of the body camera footage. Within just a few hours after this fatal shooting it so we have of fairly good understanding of what was seen there as this was playing out his book higher Bryant is he not net video. With a knife in her hand appearing to lunge at another young girl that's when the officer Nicholas Riordan. Opens fire fires four shots and officer tried to perform CPR that she later. Died at the hospital the city says there are committed to transparency. They are committed to accountability and they're gonna continue to keep the public in form. For now though it seems we've. Got our hands on those videos but the general idea of what happened but the investigation. Is going to play out separately to determine whether or not this shooting was justified. It does seem like there's a real attempt to transparency here Trevor what are police saying though it at this point as far as an explanation. Well as part of that police accountability Lindsay right now there's very little that the division of police can say in regards to this specific shooting. That's because this investigation is being carried out independently by. The bureau of criminal investigation which is an agency under the state attorney general so at least so far. There are not a lot of committed answers that the interim police chief could give us about even. Who called 911 or what started this entire altercation. However the most pertinent. Back to the most pertinent statement likely that the interim. Chief of police was able to say is in regards to department policy and that is. If there is a presence of a deadly threat either toward an officer or toward a third party. That officer is authorized to fire their weapon and they are authorized to use deadly force that's gonna be up to you the BCI to determine whether or not that was in fact the case here it does appear on the video that look I Bryant had that knife was plunging ad another girl and could possibly have been considered a lethal threat. But they'll be up to those independent investigators to decide. Yes still a lot to get into there in that city Trevor off our thanks to you.
