VIDEO: Would-Be Cop-Killer Draws On Texas Cop, Gets Destroyed In Gunfight

Detravian Allison jumped out of the stolen vehicle and immediately pointed a gun at Longview police.

Longview, TX – Bodycam footage captured the moment that an armed robbery suspect jumped out of a stolen vehicle and pointed a handgun at police (video below).

The incident occurred outside an apartment complex at 1600 Pine Tree Road on Aug. 7, according to a custodial death report compiled by the Texas Attorney General’s Office.

Longview police had received a report of a trespassing call at another location, and noted that the vehicle involved in that incident had been reported as stolen in an aggravated robbery incident on Aug. 2.

When Longview Police Officer John Collier and Officer Jason Kelley spotted the suspect vehicle at the apartment complex, they stopped to see if it was occupied, according to the report.

The passenger immediately jumped out of the vehicle and took off on foot, according to police.

The driver, later identified as 18-year-old Detravian Allison, stepped out of the car and refused to comply with the officers’ verbal commands, the attorney general’s office said.

He was holding a handgun in his right hand, bodycam footage showed.

“Get on the ground right now,” one officer told him, just as Allison pointed the firearm at him.

The two officers immediately opened fire, hitting Allison four times, KYTX reported.

The gunman collapsed onto the ground, dropping his weapon, bodycam footage showed.

The officers placed Allison in handcuffs as they radioed for medical and backup.

As they began tending to the wounded suspect, bystanders began yelling in the distance.

“I got one hole plugged right now the best I can,” one officer said. “Stay with me bud, come on.”

Allison was rushed to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, KLTV reported.

“I saw the police about to chase one man, then they stopped ‘cause they saw the other guy in the car,” a woman who witnessed the altercation told KLTV. “Once he got out, he dropped all the stuff in his lap and pulled his gun out pointed at them…He pulled out his gun first and they shot him.”

On Oct. 2, a Gregg County Grand Jury made a unanimous finding that the officers’ use of deadly force was justified, according to KLTV.

You get out of a stolen vehicle and point a gun at a police officers? You thought that was a good idea? I want to slap both of your parents.

Hard to believe you see bio exposure like this in this day and age. You don't what this guy has, and it certainly not worth risking your health. Reminds me of a 'what not to do' training video I saw in a class once.

I have to admit. The cop was perfect in every respect. He shot true, dodged a bullet, kept calm, had gloves on and actually did his best to help a thug that had just tried to kill him.

Clean, justified use of deadly force. Death just happens to sometimes be the outcome. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes

I think its time to stop warning people about disturbing content. Ant real person finds this far from disturbing when a piece of shit is shot dead. In fact, videos like this should be celebrated. Nothing better than dead thugs!!

Wait a minute, the officer did not say please don’t kill me. Also he did not try to shoot the weapon out of his hand. Just trying to be the first to put out excuses.

I feel bad for the officer. He got up, went to work, and his life changed for a long, long, time. What is it that "programs" savages like this one to think they can shoot innocent people and get away with it?

It's sad that a young man just probably lost his life, but these officer's have to deal with the fact that although doing there job, they were fired upon first, but they took a life. The officer's are obviously very shaken up. They don't look to go take a life and put that on there conscience. Not all cop's are bad.. Prayer's for all of them involved. 😥😥
