On the night of the Laquan McDonald shooting, Chicago police entered the nearby Burger King restaurant on Pulaski Road to see what its security cameras captured, a store official told NBC 5 News six months ago.
When they left, the store official said, the security video was missing.
Now NBC 5 News has obtained screen grabs of what appears to be at least one police officer in the Burger King at what appears to be a computer terminal that night.
What happened to the video is disputed. Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez said testing showed the computer files had not been tampered with.
Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said there appeared to have been technical difficulties.
But as we first reported last May, a Burger King district manager said police deleted the security footage after spending more than three hours in the restaurant.
