Cop Dumps 15 Rounds into Man With Hands Up, Kept Shooting His Lifeless Body—NO CHARGES

In March of this year, a lover of the family of 20-year-old Jesse Cedillo shared a tough to observe the video with the Project showing his last moments alive.

While being pursued by police, Cedillo seemed to have his hands within the air before a Pueblo policeman opened fire on him, shooting a complete of 15 rounds, including several after he had fallen to the bottom and wasn't moving.

Now, almost six months after killing Cedillo, the Tenth Judicial District Attorney's Office has cleared the deputy who shot and killed the young man.

After clearing Deputy Jeffrey Alfonso within the death of Cedillo, the department also released the body camera footage from the shooting.

They claim it justifies the man's death and exonerates their officer.

According to police, a lady reported that Cedillo pointed a gun at her, threatened her, and took her 2016 Nissan Versa.

When officers spotted the car, a chase ensued and ended when Cedillo crashed into a telegraph pole then ran away on foot.

Pueblo cops who were within the area, saw the suspect vehicle driving with a flat near the intersection of Palmer Avenue and Veta Avenue.

Police officers and sheriff's deputies searched the world and located the vehicle in an alley between Colorado Avenue and Quincy Street, where it had become disabled after crashing into a light-weight pole.

The suspect, who was seen carrying a handgun, got out of the vehicle and commenced running north down the alley with deputies and cops in pursuit on foot.

The suspect advanced toward deputies with a gun in his hand within the 300 block of Quincy Street.

Sounds cut and dry, right? Well, consistent with a video taken by a neighbor, and a number of other eyewitnesses, that's not exactly how it played out.

Cedillo's aunt, Amanda Fox explained how it unfolded.

"My nephew Jesse Cedillo was shot by a Pueblo County Sheriff on March 14, 2020. The deputy unloaded his entire clip at Jesse after they shot and fatally injured Jesse 12 plus PPD and PCSO officers stood around and watched as he died not even trying to assist him in any way. This was a senseless loss to a young life. Jesse wasn't armed and put his hands up because the officer began to shoot and kept shooting. They left Jesse laying there uncovered for 7 hours. the whole shooting was videotaped by a neighbor who is outraged by the killing of a 20-year-old young life."

Jaelyn Cedillo, Jesse's sister also says there's no gun and says that the newly released body camera footage doesn't show one.

"No where does one see any officer recover a gun," Jaelyn said.

In the body camera video, the officers on the scene ask multiple times "Where is that the gun?" within the report, they assert the gun was found under his torso.

If this occurred it had been not captured within the footage.

Police released screenshots of the body camera footage which they claim show Cedillo holding a handgun.

Although the cellphone video is taken from rather distantwe will tell one thing surely and it's that Cedillo's hands are within the air, above his head, when he's killed.

The video below also slows down the instant the officer opened fire on him and appears that you simply can see his fingers.

As he's shot, nothing appears to fall from Cedillo's hands, and at no time does he appear to be pointing anything within the officer's direction.

The original video didn't account for what the officer sees as Cedillo runs from in between the 2 houses, but when he fires the remaining rounds, we will see exactly what happened.

In the body camera footage, we will see Cedillo lifeless on the bottom as Alfonso continues firing into his body.

After the officer began shooting at Cedillo, he kept shooting and shooting, even after Cedillo had fallen to the bottom and lie motionless.

A dozen officers then surrounded his body and stood there, not helping in the least.

Another indicator that Cedillo was unarmed when he was shot is that the incontrovertible fact that not one among the cops immediately bent right down to devour the gun or move it far away from him.

This is a typical procedure with police to maneuver the gun faraway from the suspect.

Not until the cops stand around him for several moments do I officer appear to succeed in for Cedillo's waistband.

Also worth mentioning is that the officer's careless disregard for whoever was during this house behind Cedillo as he dumped 15 rounds into it.

TFTP has reported on multiple tragic cases during which even children are killed by cops shooting at unarmed suspects.

Luckily, nobody within the home was hurt - 6-year-old Kameron Prescott cannot say an equivalent.

The first is that the newly released body camera and therefore the second is that the original footage on which TFTP reported.
