JERUSALEM – New amateur video of a deadly police shooting in east Jerusalem is raising questions about the police version of events.
Police initially said the Palestinian driver had tried to run over their forces in Jerusalem's Shuafat refugee camp before police shot at the car. But the amateur video, aired on Channel 10, appears to show police shooting after the vehicle had stopped, suggesting it no longer posed a threat.
The driver, Ali Nimr, was wounded and arrested, while his brother-in-law, Mustafa Nimr, the passenger, was fatally shot.
Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said Wednesday the driver is being investigated on various charges, including causing death by negligence, drunk driving and driving without a license.
She would not say whether he is still accused of trying to intentionally harm the officers.
