FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — A northern Virginia police chief is calling on the FBI to release in-car video that he says shows the fatal shooting of a motorist after a chase involving U.S. Park Police.

Twenty-five-year-old Bijan Ghaisar of McLean died last month after he was shot by Park Police. Authorities say Ghaisar fled after being involved in a crash on the George Washington Parkway. The FBI is now investigating the shooting.

Fairfax County police Chief Edwin Roessler said at a news conference Monday that his officers, who provided backup in the pursuit, obtained in-car video showing the shooting.

Roessler said he wants the FBI to release the video before it finishes its investigation, which could take months.

An FBI spokeswoman said she can’t say if or when the video will be released.
