Body camera footage of Nashville police shooting released

Warning: the footage is not graphic but does show the shooting.




1 officer decommissioned, 5 others on administrative duty amid probe into fatal shooting on Nashville highway

Five members of the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department were placed on administrative assignment and a sixth has been decommissioned after the fatal Tuesday shooting of a man on the side of a highway, Police Chief John Drake announced Friday. Drake said nine law enforcement officials, including a sergeant, fired at 37-year-old Landon Eastep.

Officer Brian Murphy, a 25-year veteran of the department, lost his police authority pending a review of the shooting. According to Drake, he fired the last two shots at Eastep.

The five others placed on routine administrative assignment were identified by Drake as Officer Justin Pinkelton, a 25-year veteran; Officer Sean Williams, a 17-year veteran; Officer Edin Plancic, a 6-year veteran; Officer James Kidd, who joined the department last February; and Sergeant Steven Carrick, an 8-year veteran.

2. We'll have to agree to disagree.

 

But that's why I included the warning noting that the video did show the shooting.

4. Got to be better ways to handle these situations.

 

Tasers are one way. Below is another and I'm sure there is more.

5. Bean bag rounds and tasers?

Would either had been an option earlier after his demonstration of non-compliance?

After he raised his hand into a shooting motion his fate was sealed.
