A 15-year-old girl was shot by police officers as she ran towards them for help after being kidnapped. The case was registered in September 2022 in Hesperia, California. Images of the moment the young woman was shot circulated this week (watch below).

The teenager identified as Savannah Graziano, 15, was killed after her father, Anthony John Graziano, 45, murdered his ex-wife Tracy Martinez and kidnapped his daughter.

In the footage, Savannah was seen following police instructions, crawling on her hands and knees along a highway. Moments later, one of the police officers fired shots at the young woman.

At the time of the incident, officers claimed Savannah was shot because she was wearing tactical gear and fired back, but the footage proves she was unarmed.

Video of the shooting was released on Monday after journalists requested the footage under the California Public Records Act. The images were taken by a camera from the local sheriff’s department helicopter.

Savannah was pronounced dead at the scene, her father Anthony was also shot dead, although the footage does not show when this occurred.

The incident remains under investigation by the state Department of Justice under a law that requires officers involved in the killings to be publicly disclosed.
