He added, "I want the community to calm down and come together".
Smith's family has already filed a lawsuit against Heaggan-Brown and the city.
Heaggan-Brown could also be heard in the video complaining he'd been "stung by a bee".
"There is not joy in a case like this". "I think we must be mindful that a young man lost his life". He said it was important for the community, through the jury, to make the decision. Heaggan-Brown fired the first shot nearly simultaneously with Smith throwing away his gun when he got up. In this case, the jury reached the just result.
Heaggan-Brown's former partner, Ndiva Malafa, testified last week they were chasing Smith, 23, because they saw he had a gun. But the shooting outraged many black residents in the highly-segregated Milwaukee, many of whom who have long complained about police brutality, and touched off 48 hours of uprising in the Sherman Park neighborhood. The incident sparked nights of rioting following the August shooting. The protesters burned eight businesses and a police auto.
Because the charges related to that incident are to be handled separately from the killing of Smith, information related to the alleged rape was not presented to the jurors to factor into Wednesday's decision. He put his gun back in his holster as Smith turned into a path between two houses.
This is the moment Smith was shot twice - once before, and once after he threw the gun.
Heaggan-Brown and another officer started CPR on Smith.
