The Illinois police officer who fatally shot Marcellis Stinnette and wounded in girlfriend last week did not have his body camera turned on during the shooting, which led to his firing from the Waukegan Police Department, authorities said Wednesday. The officer, who has not been identified, only turned on his body camera after the shots were fired.

The city on Wednesday released six videos of footage from the night of October 20. Two videos taken from the officer’s body camera and dashcam only showed moments after the incident took place.
