"We have what we believe to be an adult male that was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead". Officers recovered a small Bersa handgun, posting it online.
The video follows the officer as he seeks the gun that Kay tossed over his head in the split second before the shooting. The identities of the officers involved in the shooting have not been released as the incident remains under investigation.
You can check out the body cam footage but, be warned, it is graphic. "I know that he's had multiple touches with the criminal justice system", he said, adding that it's clear that Kay "fell through multiple safety nets before yesterday afternoon".
"One of the reasons we put it out as quickly as we did is because there's a lot of misinformation in the current climate that we have, not only here in Washington, D.C., but across the country", Newsham said.
The shooting comes after several months of protests in major cities following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody. In the 11-minute video, cops are seen chasing Kay near an apartment complex. Numerous demonstrators questioned whether the teen had a gun before police spoke out about the incident.
