The New Jersey Office of the Attorney General has released police body camera footage in the fatal shooting of Everett Rand last May, who was accused of a double homicide in Newark.
Police arrived at the scene on Johnson Avenue at approximately 8:34 p.m. on May 3.
Rand was seen leaving the residence. According to authorities, he placed something in a nearby dumpster. A semi-automatic handgun with a large capacity magazine was located in the dumpster later that evening.
Authorities say Rand ran from the area and multiple officers chased after him.
The preliminary investigation revealed that once Rand was on the sidewalk around the corner, Newark police officers Steven Ferreira and Ryan Castro shot at Rand, gravely injuring him.
Officers placed Rand in handcuffs on the sidewalk. It was not confirmed if he was already dead by then.
Police body cam also recorded what appeared to be a handgun near Rand’s body. Authorities say the weapon did not belong to a law enforcement member.
Authorities say that officers found 27-year-old Wyleek Shaw and 8-year-old Zahmire Lopez dead inside the Johnson Avenue home. Officials say they were both fatally shot as a result of an apparent domestic dispute. Another person was also shot but survived. Officials say Rand was the shooter.
This investigation remains open and is being handled by the Attorney General’s Office.
