It’s been a sad few weeks for Chicago, and it’s only getting sadder.

The rapper born Aquoness Cathery was killed by a Chicago police ficer as he ran from him through an apartment building. The ficer claims that Cathery pointed a weapon at him prior to the shooting but no weapon can be seen in the new footage.
What is seen is Cathery running down the stairs an apartment building before landing on a wooden patio. It’s there that the ficer shoots Cathery. The body cam video continues to roll as the police ficer calls for an ambulance. Cathery, who was 24, was rushed to Stroger Hospital, where he died his multiple gunshot wounds.
Reports by police claim that Cathery was carrying a semi-automatic weapon when he was killed. However, the report that he pointed at the ficer appears to be untrue.
At the time Quano’s death, Fredo went to Twitter to mourn his friend and artist.
“Long live quano frontstreet or no street Bzzz,” he wrote.
