Newly released dash-cam footage obtained by KFDX shows a Colorado murder suspect opening fire on the Texas deputy who stopped his black Cadillac in March.
Montague County (Texas) Sheriff's Deputy James Boyd wasn't aware that authorities were searching for Evan Ebel in connection with the murder of a Colorado corrections chief and pizza delivery man when he stopped his vehicle on March 21.
The video footage shows Deputy Boyd approach the Cadillac on the passenger side and bend down toward the open window. The driver then fired three shots, striking the deputy twice in his ballistic vest and once on his head. Deputy Boyd then falls onto a weed-and-dirt median.
Moments later, an off-duty Johnson County Sheriff's detective stops to help and radios for help. View the video here.

His appraoch is not bad, touches the trunk right hand side, but there are bad guys out there and they have no regard for your life. This is a lesson that every traffic stop has to be taken seriously until that contact and report is made. I pray for the officers recovery and am thankful an off duty detective passed by. Stay safe.

I am so glad that deputy is OK and that the shooter is now rotting in hell after he was later shot to death by other Texas officers further down the highway after a chase. The biggest danger with traffic stop approaches is that you could low crawl up to a car and, if the bad guy wants to try to take you, he/she will. We all have to be carefull out there.
