KARE reported:

In the summer of 2006 19-year-old Fong Lee was gunned down by Minneapolis police officer Jason Andersen in north Minneapolis.

Andersen claimed Lee was evading him and was waving a gun while not stopping for over a block while the officer chased him.

So, Anderson shot Lee eight times.

Now, surveillance video released by Rich Hechter, the Lee family attorney shows the end of the chase between Officer Andersen and Fong Lee.

Hechter, along with experts he hired, says the video shows Lee was not carrying a gun during the chase.

KARE has more details here.
