After enormous pressure from the parents of 17-year-old John Albers and a lawsuit from a Kansas City television station, the city of Overland Park on Thursday released four dashcam videos and a nearly 550-page report into Albers’ fatal shooting at the hands of police in 2018.

The report and the numerous photos, videos and recorded interviews that accompany it were compiled by the Johnson County Officer-Involved Shooting Team in the days after the shooting.
