Seattle PD releases dramatic audio, video clips of officer-involved shooting

Seattle police have released dramatic video footage and audio recordings of cops gunning down an armed man who shot two strangers.

“My friend just got shot,” a woman is heard pleading during a frantic 911 call. “I don’t know where we are. We just got shot like three times.”

“My friend is dying, Please come, please come. He’s dying, he’s dying,” she adds. “Come here please. They’re shooting, they’re shooting. Come down please, we just got shot. I’m gonna die. We’re gonna die.”

The real-life drama played out shortly after 9 p.m. on Tuesday near 24th Avenue South and South Massachusetts Street, police said.

Surveillance footage from the scene shows a lone man holding a gun walk through a parking lot and walk up to a parked car.

The 911 call comes after the man is seen walking up to the vehicle.

The shooter, wearing a red cap, is then seen on the surveillance video casually walking back through the parking lot and away from the car.

Bodycam footage shows cops near the scene in their car, and five shots are heard.

“He just fired a shot,” one of the cops is heard saying.

Police rush to the scene, and can be heard yelling at the gunman.

“Drop the gun,” one officer yells. “Put your hands up and drop the gun. Seattle police.”

“Drop the gun now,” another cop is heard yelling.

A barrage of gunfire can then be heard.

“Shots fired,” one of the officers radios in. “Shots fired. Suspect down.”

Police said the gunman died at the scene.

Both victims were taken to Harborview Medical Center. One died on the way to the hospital and the other was listed in critical condition.

Seattle homicide detectives are still investigating.
