The U.S. Park Police shooting occurred on November 17, 2017, in Fairfax County and was captured on the in-car video of a Fairfax County cruiser which provided back-up in the U.S. Park Police pursuit of Mr. Ghaisar. Fairfax County Police officers did not discharge their weapons. The FBI is investigating the shooting. Chief Roessler today stated, “As a matter of transparency to all in our community, especially the Ghaisar family, and as the administrative custodian of the video, I am releasing the in-car video of the U.S. Park Police shooting.
