WASHINGTON (AP) - District of Columbia officials have released additional police body camera footage capturing police’s response in the death of a special education teacher taken into custody by security guards at a Washington apartment building.

Officials originally released an approximately 9-minute-long video from one officer’s camera earlier this week. Officials released body camera footage from a second officer Friday. Officials said earlier in the week that the footage was very similar.

The second video is slightly shorter. Both the original video and the second video show police working to revive 27-year-old Alonzo Smith, whose Nov. 1 death has been ruled a homicide. An attorney for Smith’s mother said after the first video release that the footage was not particularly revealing because when officers arrived, Smith was basically “dead already.”
