VIDEO: Suspect Shoots Texas Cop But Gets Destroyed In Gunfight

Police videos showed the Tre'Shun Miller fled police and shot an officer who was chasing him, before he was shot.

Arlington, TX – Police have released dashcam and bodycam video from an incident that ended with both an officer and the suspect shot on Jan. 11 (video below).

Arlington Police Chief Will Johnson told the Star-Telegram that he believed it was clear who fired first in the shootout that occurred between officers and Tre’Shun Miller.

The shootings occurred at about 10 p.m. after an officer stopped a black Toyota Corolla for failure to use a turn signal.

Prior to stopping the Toyota, Chief Johnson said the officer checked the license plate on the vehicle and discovered that it had been involved in a drug case back in November of 2018, the Star-Telegram reported.

It turned out that the driver, Jessica Lawson, and her front-seat passenger, Miller, were both out on bond related to that case.

When the officer initially approached the car, he smelled marijuana. So he called for backup and waited until other officers arrived, the Star-Telegram reported.

In the meantime, he instructed the people in the Toyota not to use their cell phones to make telephone calls.

A combination of dashcam and bodycam videos showed what happened after two more police officer arrived on the scene.

When his backup arrived, the officer took Lawson out of the car, and walked her over to the female officer to be searched, the video showed.

Then the other male officer on the scene told 20-year-old Miller to get out of the car.

Almost as soon as he was outside the vehicle and standing, Miller spun around and took off, the video showed.

Bodycam video showed the officer pursued him, and the original officer on the scene also gave chase.

Seconds into the foot pursuit, gun shots were heard and the police officer let out a horrible sound as he was struck and fell to the pavement.

He can be seen falling to the ground in the bodycam video of the officer who was behind him.

Without pausing, the second officer drew his weapon and continued to pursue Miller and return fire.

“During the foot pursuit, the suspect produced a handgun and fired at the back-up officer striking him,” Arlington police said in a statement. “The backup officer fell to the ground after being struck. The other male officer discharged his firearm striking the suspect.”

The wounded officer, a 17-year veteran of the police department, was shot in the pelvis, the Star- Telegram reported.

He was transported to Medical City Arlington for treatment, and was expected to recover, according to KTVT.

Miller was taken to Arlington Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead, KTVT reported.

The female officer had stayed at the vehicle with Lawson and the other two suspects, according to the Star-Telegram.

Those three were ultimately released and were cooperating with the investigation.

Chief Johnson said there were two investigations happening – an administrative inquiry to determine if the officers acted appropriately and a criminal investigation of all involved in the shooting, the Star-Telegram reported.

The chief reminded reporters that the driver and her passenger were out on bond when the incident occurred, and expressed frustration with the court system which helps “to contribute to a perpetual revolving door of interactions for police officers and these individuals who may be on a downward spiral or worse.”

“For the police officer on the street, that’s incredibly frustrating,” he said.

I won't deny my heart stopped for a moment when I heard the wounded officer on the video. I hope he will recover without complications. And I'm relieved that the perp won't be recovering.

Our justice system is being changed in many areas by democrats for the worse right along with society in general. They now value criminals & their families more than law enforcement & their families. Does anyone think they will wake up anytime soon and get their priorities in order?

I guess "Tre'Shun" decided he was going to be an idiot and get shot by the police. HE decided that. It was his choice. Good riddance.

I'm not racist but the black community is always saying black lives matter. If you don't want your kids arrested or shot, do better job at raising they.

Tre'shun?? Where do they get those names? He was headed to college to study "Rocket Surgery" and the judge let him out on bond so he could attend classes. He didndonuffin on his own, the devil inside his female friend made him do it.

Awesome, another piece of garbage not walking the earth today. Wishing the officer the best and a full recovery. Thank you to these HEROs for dealing with this kind of scum on a daily basis.

"T" for Texas, "T" for "Terminate with extreme prejudice". That was a fine example of street combat marksmanship, taking out that piece of garbage while at a dead run. Good to know that the wounded officer will survive, too.

Where there any protests by Black Lives Matter? Comply with the Police and everything goes smoothly, don’t & you could die. Tre’Shun Miller put his life at risk by trying to take another’s.
Hope the officer makes a full recovery and can return to duty if so desired. Sincerely, a medically retired peace officer

Amazing ,the family is blaming the police ....If they hadn't pulled them over to begin with it would have never happened. His family is saying The cop shot him first and then the dead shot ,so it is the policemans fault...

The point is, you pull a weapon on a law enforcement officer, you will go down. It doesn't matter what color you are. As soon as you decide to draw, you've taken your own life. Period. Do you think these brave officers are just going to LET you ruin their families? Not a chance. Don't be out doing dirt, and you LIVE EVERY TIME. Period.

The family needs a “talkin’ to.” If the guy had complied with the officers’ instructions, he would be alive today, of course the gun would have been discovered and he would have been in deeper trouble ... but alive. If he was out on bail, the family needs to answer the question of why did he have a gun? Why did he shoot at the officers? Why did he run and not comply with instructions. This guy started to look like a repeat offendor or at least someone on their way to that category. This one looks quite simple. Comply with the officers’ instructions and—in this guy’s case—live to commit crimes another day, but shoot at the law enforcement officers and you are likely to end up stone cold dead. Bottom line: very poor decision making skills on Miller’s part.
