As shown in the video, an officer was conducting a traffic stop when the suspect came up and attacked the officer while brandishing a weapon.
Early this month, an officer shot and killed a man who was allegedly threatening him with a hatchet while conducting a traffic stop in a Chicago suburb. On Tuesday, the Chicago Police Department released the officer’s body camera footage to the public.
On June 3, at about 11 a.m., a police officer from Naperville, Illinois, was conducting a traffic stop for a minor misdemeanor with a driver who had been pulled over. According to the Naperville Police Department’s security video, the suspect abruptly stopped his car in the middle of the road where he was standing.
When the man in the video exits his vehicle, the officer can be heard in the distance screaming, “Who are you, dude?”
The video shows him approaching the cop with a hatchet as soon as he climbs out of the car. The culprit collapses to the ground after being struck by a succession of shots from the officer’s gun.
