Kansas Police Dept. Releases Video of Moment an Officer ‘Mistakenly’ Shoots Black Motorist Instead of Tasing Him

Dashcam video has been released of a Kansas police officer shooting and wounding a man in a case in which the rookie officer told investigators that she intended to fire her Taser but instead used her firearm.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the video is from the patrol vehicle of an officer who pulled over 35-year-old Akira Lewis for a suspected seatbelt violation near downtown Lawrence. Lewis said in the video that he was pulled over because he is black. When he refuses to provide identification, officer Brindley Blood was summoned.

She is seen shooting Lewis when he punches and tackles the other officer. Blood is charged with aggravated battery and resigned from the police force in January. Lewis was treated at a hospital and is charged with several misdemeanors.
