    ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE)
    – Albuquerque Police have released a high-profile witness video of a deadly skate park shooting, but it’s unclear if its release will help police or family members answer many linger questions surrounding the case

    The video, which was recorded cell phone and spans about 3 and half minutes, captures a fight leading up to a shooting that took place at the Los Altos Skate Park on March 22, 2015. Six people were wounded in the shooting and 17-year old Jaquise Lewis was killed.

    District Court Judge Victor Lopez ordered the city to release the video on Thursday as part of his ruling in a public records lawsuit filed by Lewis’ mother, Munah Green.

    While the city says it disagrees with the decision, Albuquerque City Attorney Jessica Hernandez told News 13 Friday afternoon that the city will not seek an appeal. Albuquerque Police released the video around 4 p.m.

    While the video gives a better look at several of Lewis’ actions before the shooting, it is difficult to tell where much of the gunfire comes from. That’s because much of the video is shakey, dark and many of the actions take place a long distance away from the camera with other people in the way.

    What is clear in the video is that a fist-fight broke out nearly a minute before the first shots were fired.

    Video shows Jaquise Lewis was wearing a yellow t-shirt, jean shorts and a white glove on the night of the shooting. The recording begins with Lewis standing near two other people who are throwing punches at each other. Lewis is not involved in the fight.

    About twenty-seconds after the recording begins, Lewis and another man can be seen trading a few punches with another man, who then backs away. A second man then approaches, and two exchange words. Much of the video isn’t focused on Lewis’ actions through. The picture appears to move around while the majority of the crowd moves into the parking lot of the skate park.

    About 35 seconds into the video, Lewis appears to be moving more into the parking lot. As the fight continues, the crowd can be seen further into the parking lot where the video image gets further away and the picture gets darker.

    Around the one-minute mark of the video, someone fires four shots. Muzzle flashes appear to show the shots being fired into the air.

    Around one-minute and 17 seconds into the video, Lewis can be seen in the far back running toward a person, then turning around and walking towards the crowd with his arm pointed out. It’s unclear in this image if Lewis is holding a gun, however, two gunshots are fired shortly after Lewis moves out of frame with his arm pointed.

    APD claims the video shows that Jaquise Lewis had a gun. Detectives believe Lewis fired that gun, however, no gun was ever recovered.

    Around the one-minute and 25 seconds into the video, Lewis can be seen again, this time walking toward the entrance of the skate park. The video appears to show Lewis with his hands pointed in the air, but no gun shots can be heard. As Lewis turns around, a man’s arm can be seen sticking out from behind a man wearing a red shirt. Video shows the man fire at least 8 shots at Lewis as Lewis runs away.

    APD detectives believe that the man who shot Lewis did so in self-defense.Police say they’ve spoken to that man, but he has not been charged.

    Following the eight gunshots, the person recording the video can be seen running from his view of the shooting. More gunshots can be heard around two minutes and seven seconds into the video.

    Up until now, APD has never released the full witness video of the shooting, claiming that it would harm their on-going investigation. The department released still-images of video during a press conference in May.

    Detectives say several people who were at the skate park during the shooting still have not given witness statements.

    Unfucking real! Now, if more people had guns it would have been a massacre, but the assholes with the guns are the ones that have to be stopped.

    I agree man. Fucking guns need to be made illegal already. In fact we should make murder, drugs, assault, and rape illegal as well since making something illegal stops it from happening.

    WTF is going on with our politicians not making this shit illegal?

    Damn, I thought I was watching a video of St.Louis, Chicago south side, or south central L.A.! This same gangsta shit goes on in Albuquerque too?

    This happened in March? Why the delay in releasing any video, then? Were there no surveillance cameras at the skate park?

    You see more than a couple of Canadians, it's time to skate elsewhere. Isn't Albuquerque where they shoot homeless people?

    In "Breaking Bad," there weren't a lot of blacks in ABQ. Just whites and various types of Latinos.

    Any chance the guy had a Concealed Carry Permit? Any chance a law preventing him from shooting into a crowd would have helped? Any chance a law about firing randomly into a crowd trying to kill people would have helped? Any chance this guy has a perfectly clean record? Any chance he has an expired Visa or is on a no fly list?

    My guess is this guy really isn't into following laws so some new ones may not actually work unless we enforce the ones already on the books. Just my 2 cents.

    FYI....there is an additional/second video at the LL website.....it's kind of a short follow up back to the shooting scene with some of the victims on the ground
    and being helped by other people...while frantic calls to 911 are being made.

    Last March in Albuquerque, NM, a group of black males asked a smaller group of white skateboarders to borrow a skateboard at a skatepark. The whites generously offered to share a skateboard. However, when the whites wanted the skateboard back, they were brutally attacked instead.
    Jaquise Lewis, a 17 year old black male, then opened fire hitting multiple victims. One of those victims was left paralyzed from the waist down. A victim pulled his own gun and shot Lewis, killing him.

    The local media ran completely fake new segments aggressively portraying Lewis as the innocent victim of a racially motivated white on black hate crime.
