The Chicago Civilian Office of Police Accountability will release body camera footage on Thursday from the fatal police shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo last month.
In a news conference Thursday ahead of the video's release, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she had seen the videos and they are "incredibly difficult to watch."
"As a mom, this is not something you want children to see," Lightfoot said.
In a joint statement Thursday, the mayor's office and the attorneys for Adam's family said they met Wednesday and "both parties agree that all material should be released, including a slowed-down compilation of the events" that resulted in Adam's death. Posted By Ghost
