Akron Police Chief Steve Mylett said it appears that Jayland Walker reached for his waist during a chase with police and turned briefly to officers before opening fire Monday morning.

Mylett spoke in detail for the first time since the fatal shooting on the 25-year-old Monday after he fled a routine traffic stop.

Akron police video:Officers shot Jayland Walker at least 60 times: lawyer describes body camera images

Police released two videos during a press conference. The first was narrated and edited to show key moments in what happened, including an image of a flash coming out of the door of Walker’s Buick.

Disturbing picture.  Bodycam footage provided by the Akron Police Department shows the pursuit and shooting of Jayland Walker on the morning of June 27, 2022 during an attempted traffic stop.

Mylett said that’s when the police response changed.

“It went from a routine traffic stop to now a public safety issue,” Mylett said after the video played.

The second video was the real-time perspective bodycam of the officer initiating the traffic stop until the burst of gunfire that killed Walker.

Walker was wearing a black ski mask over his face when he jumped out of his car, police said.

Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan called the video “heartbreaking.”

Did Jayland Walker shoot the police?

Walker left a pistol, ammunition clip and what appears to be a gold wedding ring in the driver’s seat.

Walker was unarmed when he fled his car and fled from police, Mylett said.

In the police bodycam video released on Sunday, a sound similar to a gunshot can be heard.

Mylett, who has been chief of staff for 10 months, declined to comment on whether the police shooting — which may have involved about 90 shots, most of which hit Walker — was justified.
