When You Fire 65 Rounds After Your Homicide Suspect Starts Shooting At You

Authorities in San Francisco released body camera videos of a dramatic shootout in which police officers fired their weapons at least 65 times in 15 seconds at a murder suspect.

 

 

The San Francisco Police Department said the shooting happened on Feb. 17 in the city’s Mission Bay neighborhood when officers confronted 31-year-old homicide suspect Joel Armstrong inside an RV at a homeless encampment.

Armstrong allegedly shot two men the day before during a carjacking in the city’s Panhandle neighborhood, killing one of them.

Body camera footage released by police shows how officers tracked Armstrong to the neighborhood, then the moment when he shot at officers, who then returned fire.

Armstrong eventually turned himself in to police, and has been charged with murder, carjacking and eight counts of attempted murder.
