It has been reported that the officers who killed David McAtee were either not wearing or did not activate their body cameras. There is NO VIDEO of the shooting last night. This is a violation of LMPD policy. As a result, the Mayor of Louisville Greg Fischer, has fired his Chief of Police Steve Conrad after learning this.
