The Cayce Department of Public Safety released the dash cam video of a gunfight between two officers and a suspect who was intoxicated and in possession of drugs.

The incident happened on Nov. 17, 2015, when police say they were trying to place 21-year-old Demetrius Shelley Bryant under arrest on drug-related charges when he broke free of the officers’ grip, pulled a gun out of his back pocket and fired at the head of one officer and shot the other in the leg.

The man was shot and subsequently died of his wound.  Both officers–identified as Public Safety Officer Rhett Kelly and Sgt. Frank Ballentine–were cleared of any wrongdoing.
