Published: Updated:

A surveillance video released by authorities on Wednesday shows a U.S. police officer responding to a 911 call. He jumped out of a cruiser and within seconds shot and killed a 12-year-old boy who was carrying a fake gun, the Washington Post reported.

Video of the fatal Saturday shooting of Tamir Rice, 12, by officer Timothy Loehmann, 26, was made public at the request of Tamir’s family.
