FAIRFAX CO., Va. – Fairfax Chief of Police Edwin C. Roessler, Jr. shared the video of the U.S. Park Police fatal shooting of a McLean man, 25-year-old Bijan Ghaisar.

Officials say Chief Roessler met with the man’s family, who have seen the video. The shooting happened on November 17, 2017 and the video was captured on the in-car video system of a Fairfax County cruiser. That cruiser was on the scene to provide back up to the U.S. Park Police in pursuit of Ghaisar.

The U.S. Park Police also released a statement today, saying, in part, that the U.S. Park Police Chief, Robert D. MacLean, plans to meet with the Ghaisar family. He also says he hopes for a fair and impartial investigation.

At this time, the FBI Washington Field Office is leading the investigation into this incident.
