An Oklahoma police officer begged an ɑгᴍᴇԀ suspect not to ѕһᴏᴏт him during a tense standoff earlier this month in which a wᴇɑρᴏп was pointed at him, according to recently released body camera footage.
Oklahoma City police officer Andrew Ash was responding to a disturbance call at an apartment complex around 8 p.m. on Dec. 8 where someone was trying to get into a family member’s unit during the encounter, the police department said in a video explaining the ѕһᴏᴏтɪпɡ.
The footage was released on Dec. 21 and shows the pair in a breezeway. The suspect, Antwon Hill, walks away from Ash, who follows. As Hill, 40, then walks toward the officer, he appears to reach into his right jacket pocket and pulls out a һɑпԀɡᴜп.Ash orders him to put the wᴇɑρᴏп on the ground and slowly walks back.
“Please sir. Please don’t do that, Hill says.
“I’m not doing anything,” Ash responds in an apparent de-escalation technique.
Hill then appears to point the ɡᴜп at the officer.
“Don’t ѕһᴏᴏт. Don’t ѕһᴏᴏт,” Ash is heard saying as he walks back.“i’m going to ѕһᴏᴏт your (expletive),” Hill replies as he walks toward the officer. “I’m going to ѕһᴏᴏт your (expletive). Drop the ɡᴜп.”
“I don’t have it. Look Look,” Ash replies before backing up quickly and fɪгɪпɡ one round.
Hill is heard screaming as Ash reports the ѕһᴏᴏтɪпɡ over his radio.
“I’m OK but I need backup, the officer says.
Hill barricaded himself in a family member’s apartment before he was taken into custody. No one was injured in the ѕһᴏᴏтɪпɡ.Hill is being held in the Oklahoma County Detention Center on several charges, including pointing a fɪгᴇɑгᴍ at a police officer, carrying or possessing a fɪгᴇɑгᴍ by a convicted felon and Ԁгᴜɡ offenses.
