This past April, 18-year-old William Chapman II was killed by Portsmouth police officer Stephen Rankin, as he attempted to flee a Wal-Mart after shoplifting. Rankin first discharged his taser on Chapman, and then ended up shooting him in the following scuffle.
“The video was operational up until just before the shooting, and then it was not operational for about 15 seconds,” Attorney Jon Babineau told Pilot Online.
The footage shows Rankin holding the taser and then cuts out. When the footage returns the incident was over, and the taser was laying on the ground.
