Police release additional video footage of the shooting death of Ta’Kiya Young

Police in Ohio have released additional footage body cam and security video showing the events leading up to the police shooting death of Ta’Kiya Young, a 21-year-old pregnant mother, in a grocery store parking lot last month, according to reports.

From the Associated Press:

Young, who was suspected of shoplifting, was killed by a Blendon Township police officer who fired a single bullet into her windshield after she refused to leave her car and it started rolling toward him. Her unborn daughter, due in November, did not survive.

The additional security footage made public on Friday shows Young and two other women walking around the liquor department of the Columbus-area store. Young can be seen putting multiple bottles of alcohol into her purse and a tote bag while out of sight of the cash register. She and the two other women then leave without paying.
