It was all caught on a body camera
With all of the brutal, senseless killings that happen at the hands of cops, there are many people who give major side eyes to police officers. But to be fair, not all cops are bad cops. There are a lot of police officers who put their lives on the line to protect citizens in the call of duty.
The jobs of cops are very risky these days. Even riskier with the rep they’re receiving today. In the blink of an eye, their lives can go from normal to dangerous real quick. Two Cincinnati police officers, who were responding to a domestic abuse incident, put their lives in danger and it was all caught on camera.
Police arrive to scene
Cincinnati police officer Kenneth Grubbs and his partner were called out to check on a report of a domestic violence incident. Both officers slowly and calmly entered the apartment’s courtyard to question the suspect.
Officer Grubbs approached the suspect, and within about three seconds, his life was in total danger. The suspect, Damion McRae, 37, drew his 9MM pistol and shot the officer. Officer Grubbs fell to the ground immediately.
Another officer down
The suspect did not let up on his gun. He kept shooting, and a bullet hit Officer William Keuper, Officer Grubbs’ partner. Lying on the ground, Officer Grubbs was able to draw his gun and began shooting back at the suspect.
