Transcript for Police Shooting Leaves Man in Wheelchair Dead
Now to a new and troubling video. A deadly encounter with police, this time in Delaware. Four officers rushing to the scene. Their weapons pointed at a young man in a wheelchair. Moments later, a hail of gunfire. Here's Linzie Davis. Reporter: New accusations tonight of police using excessive force caught on cell phone video. Give me your hands. Show me your hands. Reporter: Police make this demand more than a dozen times. Show me your hands! Reporter: Four Wilmington, Delaware, officers with guns drawn Wednesday afternoon, responding to a call of a man with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Drop the gun! Reporter: 28-year-old Jeremy Mcdole was previously paralyzed from the waist down from a gunshot ten years ago. On Wednesday, police say they thought he was reaching for a gun. Moments later, a barrage of bullets, killing him. Mcdole's mother disputes police who say a gun was recovered near her son's body. This is unjust. He had his hands in his lap, they opened fire on him four more times. Reporter: The four officers involved have all been put on paid administrative leave pending an investigation. In the last five months, there's been a sharp uptick in officer indictments. At least 14 police officers have been charged with committing murder, homicide, or manslaughter while on duty. Some say it's because so many of these incidents are videotaped. It is unclear whether the 911 call saying he shot himself was accurate. The local naacp is asking for an independent investigation.
