Dashcam and bodycam videos released by the LAPD show a police chase that preceded a standoff at a Trader Joe's store in Silver Lake on Saturday, July 21, 2018.



Corado's father called on the LAPD later in the afternoon to release an unedited version of the incident.

"We are here to ask the Los Angeles Police Department to turn out all evidence so we can move on with our lives. We are devastated by her loss. We have many questions about how Mely died, but we don't have any answers," Albert Corado Sr. said.

He said what the public has seen only tells the department's version of events.

Attorneys for the family said their clients do not plan on suing the LAPD or the city right now, but may consider legal action to have more evidence released.
