VIDEO: Footage of Fallen Oregon Officer's Fatal Shooting Released

Police body camera footage released Thursday shows the brief confrontation in February between a Seaside, OR, police sergeant and his attacker that ended in both their deaths as it quickly devolved into chaos and gunfire.

Sgt. Jason Goodding and Officer David Davidson appear to be caught off-guard when a single shot rings out as they tried to take Phillip Ferry into custody outside a restaurant in downtown Seaside on Feb. 5. Prior to the shot being fired, one of the officers tried to TASER Ferry.

Investigators said Ferry, 55, fired one bullet from a .380-caliber pistol that hit Goodding, 39, under his ballistic vest as the sergeant moved toward Ferry.

The video footage shows Davidson, 28, radio that shots were fired, followed by the sound of seven gunshots. Daniel Ginther, a 24-year-old acquaintance of Ferry who was with him when the officers arrived, can be heard referring to Ferry as "Uncle Phil" and repeatedly yelling "stop" and "don't kill him."

Ferry was hit three times. He and Goodding later died in separate hospitals, Oregon Live reports.

Too bad the thug didn't get killed before he got off a shot.

Is that Percy @ 4/22/2016 11:36 PM

My feeling exactly when referring to the Danziger bridge brigade.
I see no one has commented on that yet.
None of them got the death penalty, they all got reduced sentences what a surprise.
They also got credit for time served even though most of it was unsupervised release.
Wonder why that is?

Ok then @ 4/23/2016 6:03 AM

They are two separate incidents about 5000 miles apart. Why it is the pot stirrers always mix and match their arguements?

Percy, you are correct when it comes to those New Orleans Cops, thugs in blue and deserve punishment, don't know to what extent I trust the legal system to work that out, BUT I also agree that you never seem to give any heart felt PRO cop sternest. You bring in unrelated, completely off centered comments and incidents when its inappropriate and out of context. Wise up, perhaps you might be taken seriously, possibly.

Percy's a "pot stirrer" in more than one way.
