The killing of Adam Toledo: Lawful but awful?

It was around 2.30am on 29 March when 13-year-old Adam Toledo was shot by a police officer while unarmed and holding both hands in the air.

Two weeks later, police bodycam footage of the shooting was released, triggering protests around Chicago.

But does the footage show a human error in the heat of the moment or a reaction to a genuine fear for life?

Host Ashna Hurynag is joined by Sanya Burgess, who is part of Sky News data and forensics team that has been analysing the footage, and Jerry Ratcliffe, professor at the Department for Criminal Justice at Temple University in Philadelphia, USA and former Metropolitan Police officer.
