  One more candidate has thrown his name into Fresno’s Mayoral Race: The Rev. Floyd Harris Jr. announced his run Monday night during a protest against Fresno police shootings. The Fresno civil rights leader says his decision was influenced by the recently released video footage from 2017 that shows a Fresno police officer shooting 16-year-old Isiah Murietta-Golding in the back of the head. That video is now the focus of a civil rights lawsuit. “We need leadership with backbone that cares about people first and has compassion,” Harris said.

Fresno Police have released body camera footage  from the shooting death of the unarmed teen Dylan Noble from late June. FM89’s Ezra David Romero reports.

 

One of the two videos starts off with the officers pulling over 19-year-old Dylan Noble at a traffic stop. After the teen gets out of his truck he ignores the officer's demands to remove his hands from behind his back.
