Police will release footage in fatal shooting of girl, 17

July 12, 2019

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police say they’ll shortly release body camera footage from an officer who fatally shot a 17-year-old girl on a Southern California freeway.

Thursday’s statement from Fullerton police revealed few details of the July 5 shooting but indicated that the camera footage could be released in the next few days.

Authorities say Hannah Williams was driving State Route 91 in neighboring Anaheim when the Fullerton officer saw her speeding. Police have said at some point the two cars hit each other.

Williams was shot and died at a hospital.

Police said they found a realistic replica handgun near the shooting scene.

The shooting is under investigation by Anaheim and Fullerton police and the Orange County district attorney’s office.
