New York City police announced that they have begun to use the body camera in their investigation into the death of a woman who was struck and killed by a police vehicle on a New York street.
The announcement came as police announced Friday that they had found no evidence of wrongdoing in the death.
According to police, the woman was walking in the Bronx’s East Village neighborhood, which has become a hot spot for protests and police violence.
The video shows the woman standing outside the home of her boyfriend and his wife when she was struck by a squad car driven by a plainclothes officer.
Police said the driver was stopped for a minor traffic violation.
The woman had been on a walk with her boyfriend when the driver hit her.
The boyfriend was arrested for a felony.
The driver was later identified as Officer Michael O’Neill, who was wearing a body camera.
The NYPD is conducting its own internal investigation, which is expected to take at least a month, according to a police department spokesperson.
O’Neill did not immediately return a message seeking comment on the announcement.
