Video shows suspect push teen onto train tracks

LOS ANGELES, California -- Recently-released video shows the shocking events leading to the death of an assault suspect accused of pushing a teen onto train tracks in downtown Los Angeles back in December.

In the video, a man identified as Husie Outing pushes a 14-year-old boy onto the Red Line tracks at the Pershing Square Station and then takes off.

Fire officials said the victim suffered some contusions and cuts, but did not want to be transported.

Police said when the suspect emerged from the station, he assaulted a construction worker. Several workers had to hold him down until officers arrived.

Body camera video shows the officers arriving and placing the 47-year-old man under arrest.

Officers can be heard saying that his head and hand are injured, and that they believe he's under the influence of some sort of narcotic.

Outing was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

His cause of death is pending the results of a toxicology test.
