Lawyers for the family of Laquan McDonald have been adamant that responding Chicago police officers deleted surveillance video footage from the nearby Burger King on the dreadful night of October 20, 2014 when he was gunned down by rogue cop, Jason Van Dyke.
Now NBC 5 News has obtained screen grabs of what appears to be at least one police officer in the Burger King at what appears to be a computer terminal that night.
What happened to the video is disputed. Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez said testing showed the computer files had not been tampered with.
Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said there appeared to have been technical difficulties.
But as we first reported last May, a Burger King district manager said police deleted the security footage after spending more than three hours in the restaurant.
NBC 5 has been told four to five officers were inside the Burger King after the shooting of McDonald who had run through the restaurant parking lot and onto Pulaski Road where, approximately 11 seconds later, he was shot.
In May, Jay Darshane, a district manager for Burger King, said both cameras and video recorder were all on and working properly the night of the shooting.
