Denver DA Releases Police Body Cam Video of Officer Shooting Allegedly Armed 17-Year-Old Carjacking Suspect

Denver, CO – The Denver District Attorney’s Office has released the body-camera video from the officer involved in a shooting that injured a 17-year-old boy who was allegedly armed and fleeing a carjacked vehicle, which was stolen at gunpoint two days earlier.

The video was recorded by Cpl. Jeffrey Heinis’ chest-mounted camera on the night of Aug. 16 near the intersection of 10th and Federal Boulevard. Heinis, who fired 12 shots, earlier this week was found justified in the shooting.

The 17-year-old, identified only as “LAJ,” was brandishing a black semi-automatic handgun.
