Authorities on Sunday released “heartbreaking” video of the fatal shooting of Black motorist Jayland Walker in a hail of bullets minutes after Akron police say he fled a traffic stop last week.
The eight officers directly involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave, and the city canceled its four-day Fourth of July festival as stunned residents and city leaders await the results of an investigation into Walker’s death.

Lmaooo ppl are really askin to see the whole video? Whether he shot at them or not, you think 60 fuckin shots was necessary? Then handcuff him after that? Gtfoh. White dude in Kentucky couple days before this or somethin like that KILLED 3 POLICE AND INJURED A POLICE DOG but do you think they unloaded on him? He got walked out in cuffs. Stop actin like yall don't know wtf goin on. Shit never gonna change..
1: if you watch the other body cam it shows he was wearing a ski mask so one could tell what race this guy is so it’s irrelevant that he was a black man or that the officers were white and one black officers
2: he fired two rounds at them while on the chase and why lead them on a chase anyways unless he was obviously doing something that he doesn’t want them to find out so he wasn’t a innocent man
3: in the body cam it shows him turning around looking at the police officers and making some sort of hand motion which none of the eight police officers could read what the others are going to do in their heads so they all just so happen to do the same thing and one of them knew he left his gun on the car
4: the eight officers that shot him were all separated and questioned so none of them could all get their story straight and all of them said they felt that he made a very let’s just say “dangerous” hand gesture
Not saying this is okay but please put the whole story in picture instead of picking and choosing what to put to make it seem like it is some sort of hate crime
Edit: and those saying that the officers went straight to leathal force is not accurate either You could see some officers deploying tasers failing to work or reach him
Your headline forgot the part that he also shot at the cops
A NEW DAY LYNCHING, THE klansmen IN A BLUE,BLACK or BROWN POLICE SUIT NOW instead of it's dunce cap and sheets.
How ever the situation went his back was turned, So there for he shouldn't have got shot. If he did fire a shot and that's a big if then u have to respect the response the cops gave but it definitely was a OVER KILL . THESE COPS TODAY ARE SOME SCARY ASS BITCHS PERIOD.
My Country Feedback 🇺🇸♥
Greetings from Hell.🤟
O God come quickly to my assistance against the inhuman beasts.
O Lord make haste to help me.
O Lord quickly hear my prayer.
And let my cry come unto Thee.
What's up with this?
Strip them of all rank.
Strip them of all pay.
Strip them of all personal and real property.
Strip them of their licenses.
Strip them of their right to life.
Strip them of their cars.
Strip them of their memberships.
Strip them of their faculties.
Deny them a fair trial as the deceased brother was denied as fair trial.
Strip them of legal representation.
The deceased brother was execute by a firing squad without a trial. As above so below, in the same way the officers should go.
That is my opinion.
My Country Feedback 🇺🇸♥
You mean, there was not a hail of gunfire to protect the brother?🤟
You mean there was nor a hail of gunfire following the illegal execution?🤟
You mean those officers walked away alive?🤟
What's up with that? 🤟
Funny how your white Mass Shooter walk without a scratch. Even when they killed people, including cops. I say that as a white dude myself who is lucky to live outside Murrica.
I'm glad it was ruled a homicide…
I would like to know the conclusion to this situation. I hope the cop's went to jail.
So black people will protest anytime someone black is shot, unless its a black man shooting him? And even if he was a threat? So, black people have no accountability?
Again you guys jumping on an emotional issue with only some facts. This man turned on the police and had been shooting at the cops earlier so they new he had a gun. Anytime the police know their lives are in danger, you better know they will shoot and they shoot till you are not a threat any more. This shows one cam and not the whole story. You just want communities destroyed. Nothing shows this is racist. If a white guy did this, he'd be dead too
Racism against the black communities in the USA is indeed a human rights violation that rear it's ugly head again and again.. Yet USA continues to lecture other countries around the world about human rights violation. Once Uyghurs livelihood improves in the last decades, USA sanctions Xinjiang to destabilise the province. USA, without a doubt the most conceited and deceitful country on the planet.
look like Alex Murphy in robocop! sad
He resisted arrest and got what he deserved. Facts.
You are a race hustler and a liar and an enemy of america. He shot at the police first. You are evil.
Are you run by the chosen ones? Because you lie. He shot at the police first and got what he deserved.
You are again a living piece of proof that some ancestral lines were a sheer waste of oxygen molecules. America has HUGE Problems.
SHOT 60' TIMES THEN HAND CUFFED ? WHAT COWARDS !!!!
WHEN WILL PEOPLE SEE THROUGH THE COVER UP'S' COWARDLY ACTIONS OF POLICE ? ALL THESE OFFICER'S ON A RADIO CHANNEL "THEY PICKED" WILL COME OUT. THIS MANY OFFICER'S ALL UNLOADING IN FULL FIREARMS ? AT WHAT POINT DO THEY STILL FEEL ANY THREAT ? COWARDS IN UNIFORMS NEED TO BE GONE. THE ANGER & COWARDLY ACTS THEY CARRY WILL BOIL OVER ON THE STREETS ON OR' OFF THE FORCE.
THESE ARE MURDER'S
BLACK OR' WHITE "MILLIONS" WILL BE PAID OIT "AGAIN" FOR THE THRILL KILL!!!! OMG, WILL WE EVER STOP HAVING FEAR WATCHING POLICE. A SIMPLE LIGHT OUT ON ARE CAR CAN & HAS LEAD TO MURDERS & LIES. TAPES/VIDEOS CAN & HAVE BEEN ALTERED TO COVER UP ACTIONS BY KILLERS. WE KNOW THAT !!!! WHAT WOULD OF HIS SIDE OF THE STORY HAVE BEEN? THEY WANTED HIM "DEAD" PERIOD! NO EXCUSES !
The police gun usually has 10 bullets in the magazine. Firing 90+ bullets means someone must have reloaded. Man, you are shooting a man with no body armor, not a Godzilla or a King Kong. Complete waste of tax payers' money.
Police made up so many stories they said he was shooting From out of his car while fleeing from them but they police cam doesn't show that I smell bullshit
Don’t shoot at the cops🤷🏽♂️
We don't need to defund police ….we need better police,better trained.there is something wrong with their training.
I like to know what was broken on the car that they needed to stop and check up on it. It seems that a broken taillight or a cracked windows are what the police seem to look for. Then they handcuff a man after being shot 60 times. What kind of police force do you have there? We need to fear the Police, the state and government more that the criminals. When someone breaks the law they are criminals regardless, when law enforcemant breaks the law they are just doing their job.
This is America🤦🏽
Why r u running? Why is there video of dude shooting out the window?
60 or 90 bullets, what a waste. Those ten officers should be sentenced not to leave a shooting gallery for five years.
I need to assume that he shot the police first.
I don't understand why you would shoot an unarmed person, if he has a gun then ok there is at least a reason. Just because he ran doesn't mean that the cops can shoot and why does you all have to empty your guns till the last bullet can't you just shoot on the knee, this is like cops training to shoot a zombie. 1 shot on the leg is more than enough to stop a person from running
"You Run, We Gun." I'm okay with this. If you don't want to get shot, don't run. Only criminals run …
Usa today sure knows how to lie, but when the war starts they will be held accountable! It won't be nice for them to incite hatred for police and decent people!!!!!
Dear protesters: I respect the right to protest police shootings, however there are EXPONENTIALLY MORE mothers crying over their murdered children who were shot by other black folks. This type of energy would be more productive in outing the bad actors in the black community, but you won’t protest that huh. The other one is a real epidemic that is being ignored.
100% justified shooting. But as usual the press lies leaving out he shot at the police on video, endangered life in the chase, and firearm found in his car. He also ran from his car wearing a ski mask and got lit up when he turned toward the police.
Even taking a shot at the cops didn't justify turning him into a colander.
This is ridiculous!!! Shot down like a wild animal!!!! Murder!
Stop thinking that it’s always a racist thing , it’s A Criminal thing that’s all !
Dozens of times? You mean 60 times. Five dozen times. Shot at 90 times.
90 times is insane，imaging what the body looks like. Terrible，even he was gorilla， he would be dead.
Some media got a real clean video, and there is no shots fired from the car. Plus when he flees fearing for his life (cant say he isnt right to do so considering the history this country have), he isnt armed at all. The gun is in the car, with separate ammo and body. So he couldnt have fired any rounds. Who takes out his ammo clip before running out?? Absolutely no one. And if he did shot, he wouldve taken his gun on him. That is straight murder, we can even call this terrorism. This aint about racism anymore, this is where a young man was killed in horrendous way by a horde of bloodthirsty monsters. That is what America is today. There isnt any democracy if you can get crippled just by running away. They talk about gangs this, drug that, terrorism this, russian that. But look what they do to their own people. Thats disgusting.
40 bullets but they Always arrest the white school shooters and terrorist?
If he had been a white mass shooter they would have taken him into custody without a shot being fired and taken him to get lunch. Remember that actually happened. He murder a bunch of black people worshiping at their church and got lunch.
Bro he shot at cops?!?
We don't smoke ops we only smoking dead cops
I'm with Trump on this one,you shoot at the cops it's an emidiat death sentance.
