Mayor Muriel Bowser said Monday that the D.C. police officer who fatally shot a man riding a motorcycle early Sunday did not turn on the body-worn camera device until after firing. Officials have given the existing footage to federal prosecutors, who are reviewing the incident. So far, at least one witness has come forward with a separate video of it filmed on a cell phone.
