BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Dash cam footage has been released of a shooting incident involving a teen carrying a replica gun.

Officers responded to reports of a man carrying a gun in front of a party store last November. 

The video depicts an officer firing at the teen after ordering him to show his hands. 

According to WWMT, Officer Esteban Rivera hit 14-year-old Nicholas King in the shoulder. 

Police later discovered the gun was a replica that had been painted black. The shooting was ruled as justified in December, the Battle Creek Enquirer reports.

Despite the ruling, King’s family plans to move forward with a lawsuit.
