BATTLE CREEK, MI (BATTLE CREEK POLICE/CNN) – The Battle Creek, MI police department has recently released dash-cam video from the officer shooting of a 14-year-old boy outside of a Michigan party store.
On Nov. 16, 2013, police were called to the store after reports of a man carrying a gun.
The video shows some people approaching the cruiser once the officer arrives, and hear him say "let me see your hands." After the command was given, shots were fired and the teenagers ran away.
What the officer didn't know was the teen was carrying an airsoft gun, which is a replica firearm that fires pellets.
The officer hit the teen in the shoulder.
Prosecutors have cleared the officer of any wrong doing, but the victim's family is still planning a lawsuit.
