VIDEO: Florida police release bodycam video showing deputies shot and kill suspect wanted for murder and kidnapping
Florida police release a bodycam video of officer shooting and killing a suspect who was wanted for murdering an 80-year-old woman and kidnapping two teen girls.
22-year-old Ray Kirk also killed a man and stole his truck, police said.
Kirk was located on Monday by Escambia County Sheriff’s deputies. The suspect was driving a white Ford Escape when the officers stopped him at an intersection. Kirk jumped out of the vehicle and opened fire at the deputies. The officers returned fire.
“Now, you cannot exit your vehicle, shoot 10 times and try to kill deputies without them trying to kill you back, and that is what happened,” Sheriff Simmons said.
Kirk fled the scene and was found a few yards away in a backyard with gunshot wounds. He was taken to a hospital where he died.
No deputies were reportedly injured, police said.
