ROCHESTER - New York Attorney General Letitia James is scheduled to make an announcement this afternoon regarding the conclusion of her office's investigation into the death of Daniel Prude.

The announcement is scheduled for 4 p.m. from Aenon Missionary Baptist Church in Rochester.

Daniel Prude died after being restrained during an 11-minute confrontation with Rochester police in March.

James' announcement will be livestreamed here.

Prude was arrested on March 23, 2020, but his family released body cam video in September of officers putting a hood over the Black man's head and pressing his face into the pavement. The clip went viral and sparked days of protests across the city. Demonstrators accused the Rochester police department of covering up the arrest and are demanding to know why it took months to release the video.

Rochester Police Chief La'Ron Singletary was fired by Mayor Lovely Warren over his handling of Prude's caught-on-camera arrest.

Cynthia Herriott-Sullivan, a former Rochester police lieutenant, became the first woman to lead the department on Oct. 14, 2020.
