*(Via MSN News) – A Burger King manager who accuses Chicago police of erasing surveillance video in the case of a black teenager shot last year by a white officer says he has testified before a federal grand jury investigating the shooting.
Jay Darshane told the Chicago Tribune that the FBI also took the video recorder containing all of the restaurant’s surveillance images.
The Burger King is just yards from where 17-year-old Laquan McDonald fell when the first few rounds struck him. It took just minutes for police to demand to see the restaurant’s password-protected video, Darshane said.
“I was just trying to help the police with their investigation,” Darshane said. “I didn’t know they were going to delete it.”
