A federal civil rights investigation has been opened into the police killing of a 17-year-old in Washington, D.C., after body camera footage of the fatal shooting was released Tuesday.

On March 18, Metropolitan Police Department and U.S. Park Police officers found Dalaneo Martin asleep in a car police believed to be stolen, officials said. Park police got into the car and, after a struggle, Martin drove away with an officer still in the backseat. That officer shot Martin multiple times, body camera video shows, before Martin crashed the car into a house.
