A federal judge grants the release of 2013 surveillance video showing a Chicago police officer fatally shooting a 17-year-old black teen after the city withdrew its objection to it being made public.

FOX's Jeff Monosso reports from Chicago:

Chicago police say 17-year-old Cedrick Chapman beat and robbed a man in an armed carjacking three years ago, spotted Chapman in a stolen car and gave chase on foot...

That's when cops say Chapman turned and raised a dark object... He was shot and killed by an officer, who was later cleared of any wrongdoing:

(Lawyer) "You know the path that we are going down right now is not good and it has to change."

Chapman family lawyer Brian Kauffman... The city says it fought the video release to not taint the jury in a looming wrongful death suit.

Police and Mayor Rahm Emanuel have come under intense scrutiny amid protests over surveillance video, shootings, and policy's in a city that saw 147 shootings, including 23 murders in their first two weeks of 2016.
