Video Allegedly Shows Democratic Chicago Mayor Dodging Reporters After Police Officer’s Death

A video circulating on social media purportedly captures Democratic Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson evading reporters and fleeing to a getaway car to avoid questions, footage shared by CBS reporter Darius Johnson reveals.

In the video, journalists, including Johnson, can be seen chasing after an individual believed to be the Chicago mayor, seeking to question him about the recent death of Chicago Police Department (CPD) officer Luis Huesca.

Reporters can be heard calling out to the mayor for a comment on the arrest related to Officer Huesca’s death, but the individual identified as Johnson appears to run away.

In response to the video, Johnson’s office denied the mayor’s presence in the footage, asserting that the person seen running was attempting to catch a departing car.

Officer Huesca, aged 30, was fatally shot on April 21 while returning home from duty following a ShotSpotter alert. The incident sparked a nearly two-week manhunt for the perpetrator.

On Wednesday evening, Chicago Police announced the arrest of Xavier Tate Jr., 22, who was charged with first-degree murder in connection with Officer Huesca’s death. Tate was apprehended by CPD officers and the U.S. Marshals Great Lakes Regional Task Force from his residence in Glendale Heights.

Efforts to obtain comments from Mayor Johnson’s office and CBS reporter Darius Johnson are ongoing.
