Police in California will release body-cam footage from an officer who fatally shot a 17-year-old female driver after her speeding vehicle collided with the on-duty cop’s SUV, department officials said.
Fullerton police said Thursday they intend to release the footage from the officer-involved shooting, which killed Hannah Williams of Anaheim on the freeway July 5. They did not say when they would release it.
The cop who shot her was taking his K-9 to a vet for an appointment and saw the teen speeding before their two vehicles collided, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
Williams was shot during the ensuing encounter and later died at a hospital. Prosecutors said a replica Beretta handgun was found next to the teen, but additional details about the incident have not been provided by authorities, her family’s lawyer, Lee Merritt, said during a news conference Thursday.
“We’re only left to speculate, but she’s never been on the freeway before,” Merritt told ABC News of Williams. “We believe she went down a wrong road and was forced to get on the freeway and was trying to find her way off.”
