Graphic Video Shows Aftermath Of Teen Shot By Conneticut Cop

Sirens coming from emergency vehicles can be heard approaching as bystanders watch the incident unfold.
An autopsy shows Negron died from gunshot wounds to the chest.

Bridgeport Police Chief Armando Perez said Negron’s body lay in the street for around six hours so that officials could gather evidence. Further, shields were reportedly not set up around Negron’s body.

There was reported confusion as to whether Perez’s staff could cover the body before state police detectives arrived. The police chief indicated that a forensic official told him he could have covered the body with a sheet.

“I don’t care if it’s a good guy or a bad guy — I will never allow that to happen again,” Perez said. “Never. That’s normal procedure — we hide the body.”

The Connecticut ACLU said in a statement that Bridgeport police showed “callous disregard” for the teen. They also called for widespread police reform.

City mayor Joseph Ganim said the fact that Negron’s body remained uncovered is “unacceptable.”
Boulay is now on administrative leave while an investigation on the death takes place.

Hundreds gathered at the site to pay their respects for Negron and to call for change within law enforcement.

Negron’s GoFundMe page has nearly reached its $10,000 goal in just days.
