According to The Post Millennial, Jayland Walker, 25, died on Monday after Akron police officers allegedly fired more than 60 rounds of bullets into his body after evading police during a pursuit.

Akron Police Chief Stephen Mylett said during a Sunday press conference that Walker had fired at officers from his vehicle on the expressway when they attempted to make a traffic stop.

According to the bodycam footage released Sunday by Akron PD, a bright flash can be seen emerging from Walker’s vehicle during the pursuit.

The Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James took to Twitter to react to the issue:

“I [pray] for my city today!” James tweeted.
