Video Transcript

IRIKA SARGENT: We begin this hour [? 18 ?] with a story that's been breaking all afternoon. Investigators telling us they will release bodycam video tomorrow that shows a Chicago police officer shooting and killing 13-year-old Adam Toledo. It's a move community organizers, even the mayor, has been calling for. Let's get right to CBS 2'S Tara Molina live at Federal Plaza tonight. Tara.

TARA MOLINA: Irika, tomorrow COPA will release the body camera video of the shooting and all of the other materials Adam Toledo's family reviewed first yesterday. Tonight, COPA has not told us exactly when that release will happen tomorrow.

Adam Toledo's family did not make any kind of comment immediately after seeing the videos Tuesday, and they haven't since. The family's attorneys tell us COPA honored family's wishes not to release the video and other videos they've reviewed today. But there are plans in place to release them Thursday. According to a spokesperson for COPA, they've informed the Toledo family through their attorney of those plans for release.

We're told that will include body camera video, third party video, OEMC transmissions, ShotSpotter recordings, a case incident report, and tactical response and arrest reports. A spokesperson for the Toledo family's attorneys office told me they're conducting their own investigation separate from Chicago police and COPA. They've said they're meeting with city representatives, but won't say who. We know the mayor has reviewed the same videos the family has, but said today, she won't share her thoughts on them.

LORI LIGHTFOOT: I want to be respectful of the family. But I also do think that something like a police-involved shooting particularly under these circumstances, it's important for us to be transparent. We try to be as transparent as we can. And we're going to work with the family to move this process along.

TARA MOLINA: We've checked in with the Toledo family's attorneys a number of times today on this announcement from COPA. Still no response from them tonight. Irika.

IRIKA SARGENT: Tara, planned protests continue tonight, something the family has commented on more than once.

TARA MOLINA: Irika, there was actually a small protest that formed right here just a little bit earlier. The family's attorney has said again and again, they have no connection to any of these protests, but they are urging peace from everyone in Adam's memory. All right. Tara, thank you.
