This post was updated on November 30, 2023 to include the Final Summary Report. NOTE: The release of all Final Summary Reports is mandated pursuant to the City of Chicago Municipal Code (Section 2-78-145, viewable here) and the Consent Decree in State of Illinois v. City of Chicago (17-cv-6260, paragraph 499, viewable here). As standard practice, COPA attempts to notify the involved individual and/or their representative of its obligation to post the report to its website.

Pursuant to Section IV(B) of the City of Chicago’s Video Release Policy, the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office requested and the City’s Department of Law granted a 30 day extension in which to release video and other related materials in the officer-involved shooting that occurred October 13, 2020. Accordingly, the deadline for release has been postponed to January 8, 2021.  This extension was granted on December 10, 2020. COPA remains committed to transparency and the release of video and other materials as outlined within City policy. Upon authorization, COPA will facilitate the prompt release of all required materials.

This post was updated January 7, 2021. Defense attorney’s request for Court Order to withhold release has been denied. The materials released include all relevant video, audio, and Chicago Police Department records in COPA’s possession that are required to be released related to the use of force in this officer-involved shooting and the events immediately following it.
