Bodycam footage has been released of the officer-involved shooting in Tempe that left a 14-year-old burglary suspect dead.
Police say the burglary suspect shot and killed by an officer Tuesday afternoon was a 14-year-old boy, Antonio Arce, with a replica airsoft gun.
According to police, just before 2:40 p.m., officers responded to an alley for a report of a suspicious vehicle.
Police say as the responding officer arrived at the scene, he observed someone who was in the process of burglarizing the vehicle.
As the officer made contact with the teen, he exited the car on the passenger side and fled on foot holding a gun, which was later determined to be a replica model airsoft gun.
The officer chased the boy and gave verbal commands.
During this time, police say the officer "perceived a threat" and fired his gun, striking the boy.
The Tempe police chief said Friday in a news conference that the teen was shot in the scapula.
