Kay, 18, was shot and killed on Wednesday afternoon after police responded to a call about a man said to be armed with a gun in a in a southeastern Washington, DC neighbourhood.

On Thursday, police released body camera footage that showed Kay brandishing a gun during the altercation. "We need to figure out what the facts are. In response, an officer discharged their firearm one time, striking the suspect", the MPD said in a statement. Newsham did not indicate if the man was Kay. The officer involved in the shooting was following one of the men, but stopped when the suspect "gained too much distance", the chief said.

Bodycam footage released by the Metropolitan Police Department shows that Kay had a gun but that he threw it away before an officer shot him.

Wounded suspect was taken to a nearby hospital said the police "After all life-saving efforts failed, the suspect was pronounced dead".

In the police video, an officer is seen quickly exiting a vehicle and shouting: "Don't move, don't move", before shooting Kay.

Newsham described Kay as a "validated gang member" from the area.

Newsham said the gun ultimately landed 98 feet (30 meters) from where Kay fell. A firearm was recovered from the scene, they said. Smith was charged with carrying a pistol without a license. He was allegedly in possession of an unregistered "ghost gun", according to Newsham. Brown was arrested and charged with no permit. The officer who shot Kay has not yet been publicly identified, but has reportedly been placed on administrative leave.

Officers had to form barriers to keep the crowd at bay. The reforms also require MPD to release body camera footage within five days of such an incident.

The shooting comes after several months of protests in major cities following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody. "Misinformation can lead potentially to some disturbances in our city, and that's the last thing that we wanted to see". Where is it?. I'm looking for the gun. "I gotta find it", he says. "I'm exhausted of seeing people like me get murdered". The police claim that one of the occupants displayed a weapon, prompting the officers to fire their weapons. An officer responded with legal force. The officer could have used "less-lethal tactics" but chose to SHOOT him instead. "Don't worry, people are taking care of everything else", the officer says.

Police and the crowd physically clashed and protestors, which included relatives and friends of Kay, shouted words at the officers blocking access to the station.

"During the foot pursuit, one of the suspects brandished a firearm".

On Thursday, DC police promised to release body cam footage of the shooting incident.

By Thursday, demonstrators gathered outside the home of Mayor Muriel Bowser calling for her to fire the chief.
