Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke was released from jail Monday after posting 10 percent of his $1.5 million bond, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Van Dyke, who faces a first-degree murder charge, was granted bond after his attorney, Daniel Herbert, told Judge Donald Panarese Jr. that his client was no threat to the public and should be given a reasonable bond, according to USA Today.
Judge Panarese Jr. reportedly noted before setting bail that Van Dyke is presumed innocent.
Van Dyke, 37, is seen in surveillance footage firing 16 rounds into the 17-year-old Laquan McDonald even while he lay on the ground. An autopsy found McDonald had bullet wounds in his chest, neck, back, arms and right leg.
