January 6, 2017

On this edition of Reporter’s Notebook, Crosscut city reporter David Kroman talks with KCTS 9’s Enrique Cerna about the Seattle police shooting of Che Taylor last February. Kroman obtained the entire dash-cam recording of the shooting. His story examines the police response after the shooting and the length of time it took for Taylor to be given medical aid. Medical examiners at Harborview Medical Center pronounced Taylor dead several hours after the shooting, but it is unclear whether he died at the scene or at Harborview. King County Executive Dow Constantine has ordered an inquest into the shooting.  See the full story here
