Los Angeles police releases footage in fatal shooting of teen at clothing store

Bodycam footage released by the Los Angeles Police Department shows the "chaotic" police shooting of a teenager in a California department store, as critics claim officers were all-too-ready to open fire.

Fourteen-year-old Valentina Orellana-Peralta was in a changing room when a stray bullet fired by a policeman came through the wall and hit her, killing her instantly.

CCTV Images from the scene show a clearly agitated man roaming the store with a bike lock in his hand before police arrive.

He lashes out at several people before repeatedly beating one woman about the head and body with the heavy-duty cable lock.
