The Chicago Police Station has released video camera videos where an officer shoots a suspected abductor while leaning back on a couch.
The police shooting took place just after 7 am on July 8 in the 6200 block of West Grand Avenue on the north side of Chicago.
The recording, published on Friday by the Civilian Office of Police Accountability, starts with an officer who arrives at the home of Luis Vasquez, 42, who is suspected of being a man and a woman from Elgin and then she & # 39; imprisoned at night.

The officer squeezed several rounds and hit Vasquez while trying to reach an apparent gun. The 42-year-old then fell to the ground
The officer shouted further: & # 39; Don't let go, & # 39; while the man moaned in pain
The victims, who allegedly knew Vasquez, had escaped from his apartment while he slept and reported to a police officer on duty who was driving nearby, who then asked for backup. LiveLeak.
After navigating his way through the corridors, he stops at the door of Vasquez, who is ajar, sees the man lying on a sofa and points his gun at him.
& # 39; Don't move! Chicago police! Do not move! & # 39; the officer orders the bearded suspect dressed in a blue T-shirt.
Vasquez shouts something inaudible, turns around and reaches for what looks like a gun, causing the officer to open fire on him.
Another officer fascinated Vasquez, who can be seen in this screenshot bleeding from his wounds
The agent told his & # 39; s that he & # 39; had no other choice & # 39; then open fire because the suspect continued to search for a gun

The suspect is hit several times and falls to the ground.
& # 39; Don't move, the officer keeps screaming at Vasquez, who is heard groaning with pain.
Another officer puts the dying suspect in handcuffs while the first officer picks up a black gun to secure it.
While more officers are entering the crime scene, the officer says: & He went for his weapon. I had no choice. & # 39;
After removing a gun described as a Taurus 9 mm semi-automatic gun in an incident report, the officer, who sounds excited in the body camera shot, explains to his supervisor why he used deadly force and repeated that Vasquez the gun kept going.
& # 39; I said: & # 39; Don't go for that damn gun & # 39 ;, he tells his commander.
The supervisor says: & # 39; that's good. Take a deep breath and calm down, & # 39; before you ask him how many shots he has fired.
Vasquez later died in a hospital. The 42-year-old had an extensive criminal record, including a conviction for a heavy battery of a peace officer
& # 39; I would like to say five, but I am not positive & # 39 ;, the officer replies. & # 39; Until he stopped searching for the gun, I kept shooting. & # 39;
Vasquez was transferred to the Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he died of his injuries.
The 42-year-old had an extensive criminal record, including a conviction for a heavy battery of a peace officer and firearms violations.
The officer who fired the fatal shots was placed on 30-day administrative leave, which is standard procedure for shootings involved by the police.
The investigation into the July 8 incident is still ongoing.
