US police shooting reignites debate on use of force

A dashcam video released by police in the United States has reignited the debate about the use of force.

The video shows white officer Robert Cooper firing seven shots at a black teenager inside a car.

The 17-year-old was hit, but not seriously hurt.

Police arrested him after finding two pistols in the vehicle, which were reported stolen.

The officer is on leave as investigations continue.

Cooper told investigators the suspect tried to run him over after he responded to a loud music complaint on Brockwood Ct around 1am, local time.

Watch the video for the full report.
