AKRON, Ohio – When Akron police officers first fired their guns at 25-year-old Jayland Walker early in the morning of June 27, he dropped to the ground within the first second.

Officers continued to fire for six more seconds, according to body-worn camera footage released by the Akron Police Department on Sunday.

At least one officer called out “cease fire” during the shooting, and what appears to be the same officer waved his arm in an apparent attempt to stop the gunfire, but it continued for another three seconds.

Akron Police Chief Steve Mylett said every officer who fired their gun said Walker turned toward officers and reached toward his waist and then lifted his arm toward officers before they opened fire.

But the body-worn camera footage, which is filmed from cameras on officers’ chests and therefore blurry and shaky as they run and fire, makes it hard to see Walker’s actions.
