VIDEO: Man Attacks Cops And Ignores Gunshot To Keep Fighting

An East Cleveland police officer fired his weapon at an armed attacker, but the suspect just kept coming.

East Cleveland, OH – East Cleveland police have released bodycam footage of an officer-involved shooting of a man who fired a gun in the air and severely assaulted a woman he didn’t know (video below).

The incident began at approximately 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, when officers who were standing in the department’s back parking lot heard gunshots ring out, WJW reported.

They were simultaneously dispatched to a report of a physical altercation between a man and a woman on Beersford Road, and responded to find the male suspect beating the female victim in the middle of the street, WEWS reported.

The man threw his shirt at the approaching patrol vehicle, and a woman lied crumpled on the ground a short distance away, bodycam footage showed.

The officer backed around the rear of his patrol vehicle, where he immediately encountered the shirtless suspect.

The man charged the officer almost instantly.

The officer drew his weapon and shouted at the suspect to stop, then fired a single round at the attacker’s abdomen.

The suspect tumbled to the ground while the officer scrambled backwards, putting distance between them.

Suddenly, the man jumped to his feet and charged at a second officer, shoving him backwards.

During the altercation that ensued, the suspect punched the officer in the face and both men fell to the ground.

A swarm of four officers descended on him as he continued to resist their efforts to take him into custody.

“Give us your f - - - - - g hands!” one of the officers said.

“There’s a gun,” another said, just before the video ended.

The suspect was taken to a local hospital, but his condition was unknown, WEWS reported.

The female victim remained hospitalized in critical condition on Sunday. She told police that she did not know the man who assaulted her, and that she was “just walking down the street” when the attack occurred.

Two officers were injured in the altercation, police said.

One suffered a fractured hand, while the other sustained a fracture to his orbital bone.

Both were treated and released from the hospital.

The incident remains under investigation, police said.

At some point you can count on the family of this cretin to comment about how he was planning to go to school to be a brain surgeon and was turning his life around. Then they will hire an attorney and go after the ghetto lotto. Next this sites trolls will claim the police officers should have used verbal judo instead of force. I think that about covers it.
