Boston Leaders: Video Proves Black Suspect not Shot in Back

A leader of Boston's African-American community said Wednesday that a police video of the fatal shooting of a terror suspect makes clear he "was not shot in the back." Darnell Williams, head of the Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts, said after viewing the video that he could "150 percent corroborate" the police account of how the officers engaged with Usaama Rahim. Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said officers confronted him because "military and law enforcement lives were at threat." Rahim had talked with another suspect about "committing beheadings" and "harming police officers," a law enforcement official familiar with the investigation said.
