A video aired publicly for the first time Monday showed a foot pursuit that ended in the muzzle flashes of Chicago Police Officer George Hernandez’s gun as he shot Ronald Johnson in the back as Johnson tried to run into Washington Park on the South Side.

Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez played the video during a news conference — including a freeze frame blown up and enhanced by an FBI forensics team that she said appears to show a gun in Johnson’s hand — to help explain why she decided not to charge Hernandez with a crime.

Afterward, the attorney for Ronald Johnson’s family, who have a federal civil rights suit pending against the city, expressed disappointment at Alvarez’ decision, and disputed the state’s attorney’s account of factors she said led her to it, maintaining there was no justification for shooting the man in the back as he ran away.
