CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Civilian Office of Police Accountability released body camera video from a deadly Chicago police shooting that happened last month.

During a short foot chase, investigators said, Campbell pulled out a weapon and opened fire, hitting an officer in the arm. ABC7 stopped the video at that moment.

The officers then returned fire, hitting the man several times.

Campbell died from his injuries. The officer who was wounded in the shooting survived.
