Racine, Wisconsin — The Racine County District Attorney’s Office released body camera footage of the May 20 fatal police shooting of 37-year-old Da’Shontay King Sr., in conjunction with the decision not to file charges against the officer involved, Zachary Brenner. Police said they stopped a car while executing a search warrant for a felon in possession of a firearm. According to police, King ran from the car with a gun and led an officer on a foot chase. Officer Brenner chased King over a fence and a small hill. In the video, King then appears to drop a gun. When King lunged toward it, Officer Brenner opened fire.
Officers provided CPR, police said, but King died at the hospital. A .9mm handgun was recovered from King. An analysis at the Wisconsin State Crime Lab revealed the handgun had also been used at a shooting in the area of Edgewood and St. Patrick on April 21. Chief Robinson says that shooting resulted in property damage. The gun contained King’s DNA. The King family attorney, William Sulton, said he’s requesting the final cause of death in the medical examiner’s report which he believes will show the officer used unreasonable force to stop King.
