Attorney Carlos Moore announced a $2,500 reward for anyone who has video footage capturing the July shooting of Darrius Stewart by Memphis Police officer Connor Schilling.

The video must capture the scene in its entirety, including both gunshots. Schilling shot Stewart twice, but his story differs from several witness accounts. Schilling has said that both shots happened back to back, while some witnesses said there was a break between shots. Schilling also said he fired both shots at Stewart while Stewart was on the ground, claiming he feared for his life. Witnesses said the second shot occurred when Stewart was attempting to flee from Schilling.

Moore's office will provide any submitted video footage to the Department of Justice and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI). There are several videos included in the massive TBI file on the case released to the public on Tuesday, but none capture the entire ordeal.

"As attorneys for this family, we want to leave no stone unturned," said Moore. "In light of the new information that has been revealed through the TBI file, Darrius's family is convinced that Connor Schilling should face a jury of his peers for his actions that night. We want to do everything in our power to find the missing pieces to this puzzle."

Anyone who may have knowledge of a video or may have recorded the incident on a cellphone or other recording device should contact the office of Horne & Wells, PLLC at (901) 507-2520.
