STORY: Body-camera footage released by Ohio police showed the moment eight officers released a barrage of bullets at Jayland Walker, 25, after he exited a car and ran away from police.

Walker was pronounced dead in the parking lot where he fell.

The shooting was the latest in a spate of killings of Black men by law enforcement in the United States that critics say are racist and unjustified, including the 2020 murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis that ignited global protests against police brutality and racial injustice.

The officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave, the department's statement said.
