Although still under investigation, the city of Nashville is waking up this morning to, yet again, hear of another police involved shooting.
Officer Andrew Delke, also 25, is the officer involved and has reportedly been placed on "routine administrative leave," according to police spokesman Don Aaron.
Last Night, MNPD Shot And Killed 25 Year Old Daniel Hambrick. The Officer Envolved, Andrew Delke, Also 25. The Shooting Took Place At 17th And Jo Johnston. Witnesses Said He Was Running Away From His Vehicle And Then They (MNPD) Shot Him 4 Times In The Chest, Then They Turned Him Over, Handcuffed Him, And Left Him Laying There Without Even Attempting To Revive Him. The Dashcam And Body Camera Was Turned Off When All Of This Unfolded. This Is A Cold Blooded Murder. #danielhambrick #sayhisname #blacklivesmatter #nojusticenopeace #justiceorelse #justicefordanielhambrick #arrestandrewdelke
According to The Tennessean, there was a media briefing last night, where TBI spokesman, Josh DeVine, reported that the victim, Hambrick, "emerged from the vehicle with a firearm in his hand," and that everything just escalated from there, which as we can see, resulted in Officer Delke firing his weapon multiple times, killing Hambrick.
It's unclear whether the gun was pointed at the officer or not, or if Hambrick had ever even been ordered out of his vehicle in the first place. No info has been released from authorities about how many times he had been shot, or where he was shot.
And here's the kicker, there's no body cam or dash cam footage..at least that's what police spokesman Don Aaron is reporting. Hm..
Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron just stopped by the scene. Confirms only one cop fired weapon, unsure how many times. Officer Delke has been placed on routine administrative assignment. There is no dash or body camera footage. pic.twitter.com/QtszlYpJGK— Natalie Allison (@natalie_allison) July 27, 2018
It's also being reported that the officer was searching for stolen vehicles, and the TBI is currently trying to figure out exactly what transpired before the shooting.
The officer involved in tonight's police shooting is Andrew Delke, age 25, who is assigned to the Juvenile Crime Task Force. Officer Delke graduated from the MNPD Academy in December 2016. pic.twitter.com/ARv5KDtJFb— Metro Nashville PD (@MNPDNashville) July 27, 2018
