Police officer Andrew Delke still has not been tried for the murder of Daniel Hambrick. It has been more than two and a half years since Delke shot Hambrick during a foot chase in Nashville, Tennessee.

Delke, a white police officer who was 25 at the time of the shooting, has been charged with first-degree murder for shooting Daniel Hambrick, a 25-year old Black Nashvillian, in the back during a foot chase following a traffic stop in North Nashville on July 26, 2018. Delke, was caught on camera running after Hambrick, who was armed, for blocks. At no point was Hambrick seen reaching for a gun; he instead appeared to be running for his life.

As made clear by the video footage, when Delke was unable to catch his victim on foot, he stopped running, assumed a firing position, and shot Hambrick three times, including once in the back of the head. Delke then failed to administer any first aid to Hambrick.
