Dashboard Camera Shows Sikh Temple Shooter Chasing Officers With A Gun

Police in Oak Creek, Wisc., released part of a video from a squad car’s dashboard camera that caught the shootout between the man suspected of opening fire at an area Sikh temple last month. 

In the video, you can hear officers shouting through the continuous sounds of gunfire.

The shooting erupted early last month when Wade Michael Page opened fire on a Milwaukee-area Sikh temple, killing six before turning the gun on himself.

Oak Creek Police Department Lt. Brian Murphy was shot during the incident. It was originally reported Murphy was shot eight to nine times but police revealed Monday he was shot 15 times — 12 shots hit him and three hit his vest.

“I’ve got a man with a gun in the parking lot,” an officer can be heard shouting in the video. “Drop the gun!”

The video shows a man in a white shirt fall to the ground after police yell “Drop the gun!” and fire shots.
