佛罗里达州众议员在警官开枪后发布了bodycam视频, 嫌疑人在追逐过程中被杀

佛罗里达 sheriff’s deputies released body-camera footage of a deadly shooting in which a police officer was injured and a suspect killed during a chase over the weekend.

The chase began around 4 下午. Saturday when a Port Orange police officer tried to pull over a driver, who instead sped away toward New Smyrna Beach, 警察说. Deputies deployed stop sticks and the green Lincoln sedan crashed outside a storage facility.

Cpl. Ralph Hunnefeld of the New Smyrna Police Department was struck in a leg and wounded. Officers returned fire and killed Thomas moments later, 警察说.

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office released bodycam footage from Deputy Brady Bergeron who was involved in the shooting. Sheriff Mike Chitwood called the video “harrowing” at a news briefing Sunday.

The video shows officers outside the storage facility exchanging gunfire with Thomas, who was inside, Chitwood said. When Thomas walks outside, he is shot and killed, the video shows.

“These officers and deputy did an outstanding job when faced with a deadly threat,” New Smyrna Beach Police Chief Mike Coffin said.

Hunnefeld, a 36-year-old former Marine who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, was recovering at a hospital where officials said he was in good spirits. He joined the department in 2011.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the shooting.
