Video Shows Officers Lied After Shooting

New footage reportedly shows that Baltimore cops lied about the events leading up to an incident in which they shot at an unarmed man in his own vehicle. Officers shot Shaun Mouzon in January 2013, and police wrote in charging documents that Mouzon drove his car at them. The video, however, shows Mouzon’s vehicle pulling into traffic, with several officers following in an unmarked patrol car. His car then was stopped in traffic when officers ambushed him. Mouzon crashed his car trying to escape the gunfire, and police found no weapons inside—yet he was charged with two counts of handgun-related charges (both were eventually dropped). The officers were declared innocent of any wrongdoing in July; Mouzon was hospitalized with multiple gunshot wounds and had medical bills of up to $500,000.
