Leaked CPD Video Shows Shooting Of Mother Who Died Holding Her Daughter
Chicago Police Department footage has leaked from the day that Brittany Hill was shot to death while holding her 1-year-old daughter.
In the leaked footage you can see Hill holding her daughter as a car pulls up and fires multiple shots. Following the gunfire Hill can be seen running to take cover behind a parked car and trying to protect her child. She soon slumps over by the car while still holding onto her child. She is later carried lifeless into another vehicle to the hospital. Unfortunately, she passed away.
“We have notified the state’s attorney’s office and opened an investigation to determine who electronically accessed the video and whether anything was released or compromised,” a department rep said of the leaked footage.
CBS Chicago reports that the leaked footage could have implications for the trial as it could be difficult to find an unbiased jury, meaning that the trial has to be relocated.
39-year-old Michael Washington and 23-year-old Eric Adams have been arrested for the murder. Hill’s family are aware of the footage, but have not yet commented.
