The Civilian Office of Police Accountability, the independent agency charged with probing police shootings, confirmed in a tweet Sunday afternoon that its investigators had also responded to the shooting.



When asked if the officers' body camera footage would be released, the city oversight agency said it understands "the importance of transparency and timelines, and will release at the earliest point possible without comprising the integrity of the investigation."

The officers involved are now on 30 day administrative duty, CPD said.

COPA urged anyone with information about the shooting to call (312) 746-3609.
