Police on Monday released body camera video that shows an officer unleashing a fatal volley of at least eight shots at a suspected burglar as the suspect’s car veers across a dead-end street and crashes into a row of bushes.

“Stop! Stop!” one of Hallandale Beach officers yells at the man in the gray Toyota Corolla, while another officer shouts, “Let me see your hands!”

Then, as the car first backs up before lurching forward, the shots ring out, peppering the driver’s side of the car and killing 27-year-old Michael Wilson Jr. of Pompano Beach.

He was hit in he neck and pronounced dead at Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, police said.

The shots were fired at about 4:30 a.m. Sunday by Officer Corey Clark, while the scene was recorded by Officer Richard Icobelli, who had a body cam pinned to his hat, according to Police Chief Dwayne Flournoy.

Police began wearing the body cams in December. Clark’s body cam, however, was not activated.

After two hours search, the second suspect was found hiding in a pool closet.
