Police Dash Cam Captures Fatal Oregon Gun Fight
On August 29, John Van Allen was pulled over for speeding. He immediately stands up, then ignores the officer's demands to get back into his car. Suddenly, he pulls a pistol out, begins firing and approaches the police cruiser. The officer, Matt Zistel, was hit in his side. He still returned fire and mortally wounded Allen, who, despite being shot, made his way back to the car and sped off. He was found dead a half mile down the road.
In Allen's car were his three children, who were all okay. Zistel also recovered from his injury. The DA ruled that Zistel's use of lethal force was justified. It's hard to doubt that after seeing this.
