Newly released video sheds light on the police shooting inside a Walmart

John Crawford III was shot dead by a police officer inside an Ohio Walmart. He was holding a “pellet” gun that he had picked up from the store’s shelf. Crawford’s death came four days before Michael Brown was shot and killed in Ferguson. In both cases, grand juries cleared white officers of any wrongdoing. Today Mr. Crawford’s family filed a federal lawsuit against the police and the store. This comes as newly released video shows the police interrogation of Mr. Crawford’s girlfriend. Ana Cabrera has the latest.

Anderson discussed the case with retired NYPD Detective Harry Houck and CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin.
