Video: Cop dragged from suspect's vehicle, police shoot driver

The suspect was shot 4 times after fleeing police when one officer jumped into his car to assure that it would not move


PITTSBURGH — A man who was shot by police during a traffic stop in November faced a preliminary hearing Thursday.

According to police, Leon Ford, 19, allegedly refused to cooperate with officers and drove off after a traffic stop. Fearing he would be dragged away, one officer jumped into the car and then reportedly fired after Ford resisted and refused orders to stop.

The criminal complaint said officer David Derbish said he feared the driver was reaching for a gun. He said two officers were in front of the driver’s side door, and he feared for their safety so he jumped in the car.
