Knoxville Police Chief Eve Thomas Want Police Officer Body Camera Footage Released

Knoxville Police Chief Eve Thomas is calling for the release of body camera video of the deadly officer-involved shooting at Austin-East Magnate High School.

Thomas says our officers want to see the video released and the community deserves it as well.

TBI officials confirmed 17-year-old Anthony Thompson Jr. was killed during Monday’s incident.

Knox County District Attorney General Charme Allen says she understands that citizens want to see the bodycam footage of this case but her priority is to protect the criminal potential of the case and her office “has to protect the due process of law.” Allen says the video footage will be released at some point, but it must be done “at the appropriate time.”

There is no custom code to display.
