A music video posted online threatens retaliation against LAPD officers for the police shooting of a mentally disabled man. 

A law enforcement official says the video was made by a local street gang. Video of masked men rapping about revenge is intercut with news footage from the scene of where Ezell Ford was killed.

LAPD Commander Andy Smith says Ford was shot when he grabbed for an officer’s gun. He says the autopsy findings are still being kept confidential.

He says it's harder to do a clean interview once evidence is made public. Smith says the findings and the names of the officers involved will eventually be revealed.
