Police: Officer-involved shooting is ruled as justified in Bourbon

(KMOV) – New dashcam video is available for an officer involved shooting that took place in March.

The video shows that a high speed chase took place, reaching up to speeds of 100 mph. The driver of the car, Gary Wenzel, eventually crashes his vehicle into a ditch at the intersection of Route J and Fann Road. The officer’s car was behind him. Wenzel tried to reverse his vehicle, but when he could not, he stepped out of his vehicle and walked toward the officer.

Within seconds, the officer shot Wenzel three times—in the head, chest, and leg.

Wenzel was dead at the scene. The officer’s actions have since been ruled as justified.
