Fairfax County Police release body-camera footage from in-custody death

Fairfax County Police have released body-camera footage from an in-custody death that occurred in the Franconia District in November.

The footage is from a Nov. 10 incident where FCPD said a man in police custody had passed away while being taken to the hospital.

FOX 5 previously reported that police had responded to the 6500 block of Amherst Avenue in Springfield on Nov. 10 for a man acting disorderly and running into traffic. Temiki Murray, 44, of Lorton, was placed into handcuffs to prevent him from running back into traffic, according to police.

An ambulance then took Murray to a nearby hospital. Police say, while the ambulance was en route, Murray suffered a medical emergency. They did not specify the nature of the emergency.

Murray was eventually pronounced dead at the hospital.

Chief Kevin Davis says they wanted to release the body-camera footage out of a desire to be completely transparent when it comes to in-custody deaths.
