What we know about the fatal police shooting of a 13-year-old in Utica, NY
Quick Glance: Shocking Bodycam Footage Captures Frantic Chase
  • Shocking bodycam footage captured upstate New York police asking to pat down a 13-year-old boy moments before he ran off and allegedly flashed a pellet gun at cops - who fatally shot him.

  • Nyah Mway, a member of the Karen community, spoke with the officer in English and can be seen raising his hands before quickly running off, prompting the three police officers to chase after him.

  • The incident led to Nyah Mway being shot by an officer after allegedly pointing a weapon at them, which was later revealed to be a replica Glock and a pellet gun.

  • Community members expressed anger and demanded justice at an emotional press conference attended by at least 50 of Mway’s family members, where the mother of the boy broke down in tears as officials' remarks were translated.
