Police Release Footage of Shootout That Left Officers Shot and Man Dead in Walmart
The man pulled a gun on officers.
Police have released video of a dramatic shootout between two officers and man who opened fire on them, leaving the officers wounded and the suspect dead.
On April 23, police were called to the Arizona Walmart to remove 24-year-old Mitchell Oakley, who was allegedly trespassing on the property, but officers didn’t know Oakley had a gun.
In the video recorded at 6:41 a.m., Officers Joshua Pueblo and Daniel Colwell approach Oakley inside a McDonalds in the store and Oakley stands on a chair and begins shooting at them.
A gunfight ensues with the officers shot multiple times; Officer Colwell is unrelenting and shoots Oakley dead as he runs from the store during the shootout.
The two officers were hailed as heroes by their department.
Officer Joshua Pueblo remains on medical leave while recovering from gunshot wounds to the face and arm.
“All I [saw] was blood. I didn't know what exactly was wrong. I didn't know how much blood I was losing, or if I was going to make it. So there were definitely thoughts of family,” Pueblo told KPHO.
Officer Daniel Colwell has returned to duty, according to authorities.
