By PoliceOne Staff

WHITESIDE COUNTY, Ill. — Ill. State Police have released dash cam footage of a November 2013 incident that resulted in the fatal shooting of a suspect.

According to KWQC, Ill. State Trooper Luke Kuehl, and Conservation Officer Steve Francisko pulled over suspect Shane Cataline regarding 911 a call he placed. This was the second time Cataline was pulled over that day for a wellness check.

As the two officers repeatedly asked Cataline to step out of his vehicle, he backed up, pushing Trooper Kuehl into traffic.

Cataline then directed his van at the trooper, ramming Kuehl’s squad car and pinning him between the two vehicles. Francisko then jumped on the hood of the squad car and opened fire, shooting five rounds and killing Cataline, according to the report.

Francisko then took Kuehl to safety. An investigation by the County Attorney’s office found Francisko’s actions justified. Kuehl has also returned to work.
