Body-worn video of the shooting of Kumanjayi Walker, described as “confronting”, is expected to be played at a committal hearing for the Northern Territory police officer charged with his murder.
Prosecutor Philip Strickland SC has flagged playing the video from last year’s November 9 incident during the second day of the hearing in the Alice Springs Local Court on Wednesday.
He said advance notice would allow people who did not wish to view the video to leave the court.
Constable Zachary Rolfe has been charged with the murder of the 19-year-old who was fatally shot as police tried to arrest him at his home in Yuendumu, 300 kilometres northwest of Alice Springs.
Rolfe has not yet entered a plea but previously indicated he would contest the charge.
The committal hearing will determine if the matter proceeds to the Supreme Court for trial.
The hearing will run until Friday, with a decision expected to be handed down at the end of the week at the earliest.
