Video: Dash cam released in campus tractor OIS

After being shot five times, the man continued to stand his ground and display his firearm

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — At a press conference Monday morning, West Lafayette police announced that the two officers involved in the police-action shooting of Eric Tendam have been released back to full duty.

Police also released dash-camera video of the events leading up to the police-action shooting. A clip from that video has been attached to this story, but we will be uploading a higher-quality version shortly.

Police said Officer Michael Max fired three rounds, and Officer Mark Ridge fired seven rounds. Police said all ten rounds have been accounted for, and that they were grateful that Purdue students were on spring break at the time of the incident.
