Video: Houston gunfight from witness' point of view

Gunman shot two police officers — both of whom are expected to recover — before taking his own life

By PoliceOne Staff

A gun battle between Houston (Texas) police officers and Jesse Brown, a man suspected of shooting three people (including a 3-year-old girl) in San Francisco was captured by a witness in a passing car and recorded on cell phone video. Chris Ashby, riding in the passenger seat and videotaping out the window of the vehicle, is hear urging the driver of the car to, “Get the [bleep] out of here dude!”

The suspect was able to shoot two police officers — both of whom are expected to recover — in the weekend shootout that began at a downtown Houston bus station. Trapped and barricaded inside a parking garage, the gunman took his own life, ending the two-hour episode.

Watch the video and let us know what you think.
