Tyshawn Lee’s Mom Calls LaQuan McDonald’s Death ‘Most Disgusting Thing’ She’s Heard About Besides Son’s Death

The past month has been a nightmare for Karla Lee who had to bury her 9-year-old son Tyshawn Lee after he was gunned down in cold blood. Ms. Lee is also saddened by dash cam footage of Laquan McDonald’s murder.

Former CPD officer Jason Van Dyke, 37, is shown in the footage firing 16 rounds into the 17-year-old boy even while he is on the ground. An autopsy found McDonald had bullet wounds in his chest, neck, back, arms and right leg.

“This is the most disgusting thing I have seen or heard beside my sons death this is absolutely unacceptable that boy was already down y the F**k keep shooting him like that that’s f****d up just made me more sicker,” Ms. Lee wrote on Facebook.

The City Council’s Committee on Finance approved a $5 million settlement to the family of McDonald Monday in June, according to CBS 2 Chicago. The family initially sought $16 million.

“They didn’t need to shoot him. They didn’t. They basically had him face-to-face. There was no purpose why they had to shoot him,” witness Alma Benitez told CBS Chicago.

Chicago police officers deleted security footage that may have captured the events leading up to the shooting death of the teenage boy in October 2014.

Police officers allegedly went to a nearby Burger King and requested password to security equipment, according to NBC Chicago. They then deleted 86 minutes of video.

The Independent Police Review Authority is denying officers tampered with security footage. A spokesman for the IPRA said: “We have no credible evidence at this time that would cause us to believe CPD purged or erased any surveillance video.”

Jay Darshane, the District Manager for Burger King, told NBC Chicago all security footage was working at the time of shooting.

“We had no idea they were going to sit there and delete files,” Darshane said. “I mean we were just trying to help the police officers.”

Police alleged the youth punctured one of the squad car’s front passenger-side tire and damaged the front windshield.

“When police tell you to drop a weapon, all you have to do is drop it,” Pat Camden a spokesman for the Fraternal Order of Police told the Tribune.
