Video shows police shooting Ohio stabbing suspect seconds after arriving to reports of attack
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) ' Police video of an officer's response to reports of people being stabbed in downtown Columbus, Ohio, show the suspect shot within seconds of an officer's arrival.
Video from Officer Deborah Ayers' police cruiser records her firing multiple shots at a man just nine seconds after her car stops a few dozen feet from the scene.
The video released Thursday by Columbus police shows a passer-by pointing Ayers in the direction of the man while the man can be seen briefly in the background.
The video of Wednesday's stabbings shows Ayers stumbling backward after firing several shots and then firing again.
Police say the man she shot has been charged with four counts of felonious assault.
