The Greensboro Police Department released the body cam video Wednesday of the deadly officer-involved shooting of Chieu Vo in March 2014 according to the video uploader.
911 calls show a witness called authorities, stating Vo was chasing her mother around with a knife. A 911 caller identified the knife as a meat cleaver. Capt. Mike Richey says the blade was eight inches and took up the majority of Vo’s forearm.
When the officer arrived on the scene, he asks witnesses the whereabouts of Vo. A witness who called 911 responds to the officer. During that interaction, the body camera video shows Vo running towards the officer with a knife in her left hand. The video captures the officer screaming, “put it down,” before firing several rounds.
