A man accused of killing his girlfriend charges an armed police officer in this intense body-camera video. The suspect, hell-bent on “suicide by cop” screams “Shoot me! Shoot me!” as the officer back pedals with his firearm drawn and ready to shoot.
Investigators say Michael Wilcox, 27, killed his fiancee in their Brown County, Ohio, home, then killed his best friend. A Brown County investigator spotted Wilcox at about 8 p.m. and attempted to stop him, but Wilcox claimed he had a gun and drove away, officials said.
While the use of deadly force was justified in this situation, we applaud police officer Jesse Kidder for his service and dedication to serve and protect. What are your thoughts on this officer’s actions? Sound off in the comments section below.
