VIDEO: Suspect Attacks Ind. Cops with Large Knife

Lafayette (Ind.) Police have released dash-cam footage showing the fatal shooting of a suspect who stabbed an officer in the face with a large knife.

The shooting happened Oct. 19 after a nearly four-mile chase. Officers began pursuing a black Cadillac driven by Paul Spencer, 39, after they observed him driving the wrong way on downtown streets, reports WLFI.

After running off the road, Spencer stabbed Officer Ron Dombkowski in the left cheek. Officers Jeff Webb and Joe Fisher then fired 10 shots, seven of which struck Spencer, reports the Journal & Courier.

The video definitely shows the real life validity of that old 21 foot rule of thumb about how quickly a determined knife wielding attacker can get to you. Good reactions by assisting officers Webb and Fisher to instantly do what they had to do and put the POS out of business permanently.

I would like to read the comments of all of the officers involved. I am sure junior officers could gain from the their words.
