Authorities this week released horrific footage of a November 2015 police shooting that resulted in the death of Jeremy Mardis—a six-year-old boy with autism.
The footage comes from a camera reportedly worn by Marksville, LA Sergeant Kenneth Parnell III. It does not contain audio for the opening seconds. In the video, deputy marshals Derrick Stafford and Norris Greenhouse Jr. are seen opening fire on a vehicle being driven by Mardis’ father, Chris Few. The shooting followed a car chase in which Jeremy was an unwitting passenger.
“I never saw a kid in the car, man,” Stafford can be heard saying after the shooting, in which Few was also injured. “I never saw a kid, bro.”
Warning: the video is graphic and may be upsetting for some viewers.
