Chicago -- Chicago -- A 13-year-old boy had his hands raised in the air and appeared to be unarmed when he was shot by a Chicago police officer in May, new surveillance video footage showed.

In the video, obtained by The Daily Beast and Atlanta Black Star, the Black teen — identified only by his initials A.G. — can be seen running off the sidewalk toward the light of a gas station parking lot with his hands visibly raised in the air and no weapon in sight.

When he turned around to his right, the 13-year-old is then shot by an officer, leading to him collapsing on the ground in front of the gas station, the video showed.

Officers can then be seen in the footage carrying the boy to a different location by his legs and a piece of clothing. The teen's arm briefly dragged on the pavement as he was being transported.

A.G. was involved in the foot chase with the Chicago Police Department (CPD) officers on May 18.

Authorities alleged that the teen was a passenger in a Honda Accord involved in a carjacking the day before the shooting. The boy allegedly jumped out of the car and ran when he saw the police.

The teen has not been charged with a crime. The driver of the Honda has not been identified or arrested as of writing.

The boy's family is suing the city and the unnamed police officer over the incident, claiming that the teen was unarmed and followed police commands before he was shot.

In her complaint, the boy’s mother Cierra Corbitt said, “CPD officers did not render immediate aide to A.G., but instead callously dragged him across the pavement and then turned their attention to an uninjured officer who crashed into a sign at the gas station while arriving on scene.”

Chicago police officials previously said that the officers moved the boy in order to avoid harm from a potential gas pump explosion.

A.G. still has a bullet lodged in his back and is dealing with a spinal cord injury and wounds to his esophagus, his lawyer Andrew Stroth said. He is currently undergoing rehabilitation and is learning how to walk again.

“His wishes are to get healthy, his wishes are to walk, his wishes are to play basketball, his wishes are to ride his bike,” the lawyer told The Daily Beast.

Two days after the shooting, Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said that A.G. turned toward the officers before he was shot.

Two witnesses, however, told ABC Chicago that the teen had his hands up and complied with the officer’s orders.

“They said, ‘Put your hands up, put your hands up!’ The boy’s hands were up. There are other people out there [who had] seen it. I got it all on my phone—his hands were up. He didn’t have a gun. They shot him for no reason,” one unnamed eyewitness said.

The boy's mother is now demanding that the police department release all video footage of the incident.

“I’m just concerned about my child. He may not walk again,” she said. “He [is] laying up there, he [cries] all the time ’cause he just wishes he would have stayed in the house that day.”
