VIDEO: Authorities Release Footage of Incident that Led to Fatal Shooting of GA Officers
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation released footage of the incident that led to the shooting death of two police officers in Americus earlier this month.
The GBI released redacted video from a body camera worn by officer Nicholas Smarr with the Americus Police Department on Dec. 7. The reasoning for the redacted video, per the GBI was, "to protect the privacy and to prevent further trauma, sorrow or emotional injury to the immediate families of these officers."
The video shows the officer arriving at the scene, walking into the apartment where the domestic dispute 911 call originated and making contact with the suspect, Minquell Lembrick, as he exited the apartment and was chased, WTOC TV reports.
The video stops as the officers were shot at by the suspect.
