Video shows struggle before Grand Rapids officer shot Patrick Lyoya

Grand Rapids — Amid public outcry for transparency, police in Grand Rapids released videos Wednesday that showed a White officer shoot a Black man following a struggle that ensued last week during a traffic stop.

In roughly 20 minutes of footage released by Grand Rapids police during a press conference, an officer, who has not been named, can be seen wrestling with 26-year-old Patrick Lyoya before firing his weapon into the back of Lyoya’s head. The video appears to show Lyoya trying to gain control of the officer’s stun gun during the struggle.
