CHICAGO (AP) - The family of a teenager shot to death by Chicago police in 2013 is asking for an FBI investigation after seeing surveillance video that captured part of the incident.

Chantell Brooks went to police headquarters Monday to view the video, taken from a police observation camera. Her son, 15-year-old Michael Westley, was fatally shot after police said he pointed a gun at them.

Brooks says the video shows police were wrong in their judgment. She says Westley was running and didn’t have a weapon.

Multiple media outlets obtained the video, which shows Westley running but doesn’t show the shooting.

Previously released dashcam video showed only the aftermath. Police said they found two guns at the scene.

A department spokesman didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press seeking comment.
