DA releases police video of deadly narcotics raid (FOX 8 WVUE)
Tuesday September 17th, 2013
New Orleans, La. - Orleans District Attorney Leon Cannizarro says at least five Orleans and Jefferson Parish lawmen were involved in the raid of Wendell Allen's Prentiss Street home. One was wearing a pin camera that captured images of what happened that evening.
The video is shaky and the date on the video is wrong, but it's a record of the March 7, 2012 shooting of Allen.
"It was a two-story dwelling. The officers entered the house with a battering ram. They actually knocked down the door and entered the house," said Cannizzaro.
On the tape you can hear the sounds of the battering ram and screams of people, including children, in the home.
