Last updated June 8, 2023

St. Louis Police have released footage from a February 2023 pursuit. The incident occurred when the suspect engaged in a shoot-out with officers before being struck by a police car.

The 42-year-old suspect was observed driving recklessly, refusing to stop when officers attempted to pull him over.

Furthermore, the video shows the suspect hitting light poles, exiting his still-moving vehicle with a pistol, and then firing at pursuing officers in a parking lot.

Consequently, he was hit and run over by police cars. Of course, an investigation into the officers' use of force is ongoing.


Jackson was the only person injured during the incident. Police confirmed his wounds were not life-threatening and that no officer discharged their firearms in the encounter.

Also, dispatch audio was released of the department instructing officers to check on inhabitants living in the direction the suspect had fired his weapon.

  1. See this is a perfect example of why there is to reason for an investigation into police use of excessive force. It looks more like self defense with what you can see in the video the person has a extra long magazine in his gun, I hope no one in any of the houses were hit.

  2. OMG! This man was SO STUPID! You cannot blame the police for hitting him with their vehicle. At the end of the day, they want to go home to their families and this idiot not only endangered innocents and himself, but the police also. The perp's rampage HAD to end and I thank God that it did without anyone else being hurt.
