Just hours after Officer Jason Van Dyke was charged with murder in the death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald last year, Chicago police released dash-cam footage of the incident. Here is the video, via DNAinfo Chicago.

On Twitter, however, reporters wrote that they were having difficulty downloading the video from the link Chicago PD provided. The website hosting the video crashed within fifteen minutes of being provided.

Van Dyke shot McDonald 16 times over the course of 14 or 15 seconds, prosecutors said, less than 30 seconds after arriving at the scene. For 13 of those seconds, McDonald was already on the ground.

The video would appear to corroborate witness accounts that McDonald, who was holding a knife, did not speak to or threaten Van Dyke before the officer shot him.

Witnesses said Mr. McDonald, who was carrying a folding knife, never spoke to Officer Van Dyke nor did he do anything threatening toward him.

The charges against the 14-year-police veteran were announced only after a judge ordered that the video of the shooting be released, 13 months after McDonald’s death. Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez defended the delay, the Associated Press reports, saying that she made the decision to charge Van Dyke “weeks ago.”
