>> Shocking and disturbing. That's how the head of Chicago's police oversight agency described this video of the moments before and after cops shot dead an unarmed black teenager. The incident leading to renewed condemnations about CPD's use of lethal force. The footage released Friday show officers firing into a car as it drives away from them.
00:00:21
And then chasing 18-year-old Paul O'Neal after he abandoned the vehicle which had been reported stolen. A family spokesman said nothing in the video justified the killing.>> If he did steal that car, that is for the courts to decide. But instead, the police officer decided to be the judge and execute him the way that they did.
00:00:41
>> Three officers involved in the shooting have been stripped of their duties. The incident comes amid a slew of police shootings of black men across the country. Chicago's P.D. has been under particular scrutiny. Last December, authorities released video showing the death of 17-year old Laquan McDonald, who was shot by a cop 16 times in October 2014.
00:01:01
Mayor Rahm Emanuel has since launched a task force to implement reforms in the department, in February, saying video of police shootings must be made public within three months. O'Neal was killed at the end of July, the footage released eight days later but questions over transparency remain.>> There is not actual body cam footage of the actual shooting.
00:01:22
What we have seen without that is beyond horrific, I can only imagine what that bodycam footage would have shown if we were able to see it. But because those police officers who murdered, Paul O'Neal decided that we couldn't see it, decided that they would control this, we won't see it, and so the cover up has begun.
00:01:49
>> Earlier this week, police said the officer who shot O'Neal had his body camera turned off.
