BENTON HARBOR, Mich. — Police in Benton Harbor have released a video that shows officers were scrambling to dodge bullets before a man was killed in a shootout.
Police say Darius Wimberly had two guns when he shot at officers early Tuesday. The 28-year-old was killed.
The video shows Benton Harbor officers outside a house to investigate a report of someone being held at gunpoint. There was no incident, but then shots were suddenly fired by someone nearby. The video and audio shows an officer uttering a profanity and running as more shots were exchanged.
The video released by Benton Harbor’s public safety department lasts less than 2 minutes.
Meanwhile, Mayor Marcus Muhammad is urging the public to be calm. He says “danger can come out of anger when not checked.”
