Video of Teenager’s Fatal Shooting May Contradict Initial Police Account

Legislators and victims’ advocates in Connecticut called on Tuesday for changes in how the state investigates police shootings, after a video revealed contradictions between the way a teenager was killed last week and what the police initially reported.

Jayson Negron, 15, was killed on May 9, when officers in Bridgeport, Conn., tried to stop a stolen vehicle after a very brief chase, according to a May 10 statement from the Connecticut State Police, who are investigating the shooting.
