JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Surveillance video obtained by Channel 4 shows a police-involved shooting inside a parking garage at Jacksonville International Airport in May in which police say a car thief tried to run over officers, then got away.

Rodney Addison, 20, and a 17-year-old in that vehicle were shot. Both are OK, and Addison is in jail. The video from inside the rental car garage shows a man who police say is Addison parked in a stolen car. He gets out, stands in the doorway and then is quickly surrounded by unmarked police cars, which had been following him for quite a ways.

Investigators say when he was cornered, he rammed two of their vehicles and almost ran over some of their officers as he tried to get away. Addison faces a slew of charges ranging from attempted murder of a law enforcement officer to auto theft to possession of cocaine.
