A shocking video shows the moment emergency workers in Florida had to hide from gunfire between a suspect and police.

County Sheriff Tommy Ford said at a news conference in Panama City that sporadic bursts of heavy gunfire had pinned several officers down at times as suspected assailant, Kevin Robert Holroyd, 49, fired from an elevated position with a rifle.

In the video, those gunshots can be heard nearby as members from the Panama City Fire Department and other first responders hide behind vehicles in a parking lot.

A man in California said he was checking his security camera when he noticed several officers conducting what he said was a training exercise inside his home.

The man told the outlet that he and his family moved into the home about a month ago and didn’t close the door properly when they left.

In surveillance video from inside the home, several officers are seen checking the house to make sure no one was in there. They all have their guns drawn.

GEORGIA: Dashcam footage shows Alpharetta police dragging a 65-year-old grandmother out of her car during a traffic stop. According to reports, she was pulled over for failing to maintain her lane and allegedly refused to sign her citation because she thought that meant admitting guilt. She then asked to speak to a supervisor and refused to open her door, which led officers to arrest her for disorderly conduct. The cop who aggressively pulled her has since been suspended and an internal investigation for his conduct is underway.

Kentucky police detective assigned to drive a rape victim home in September 2017 is accused of taking her to a hotel and sexually assaulting her instead, prosecutors said.

John W. Nissen, of the Hillview Police Department, was indicted last week on charges of official misconduct, tampering with a witness and theft by deception, according to WLKY in Louisville.

Hillview Police Chief William Mahoney III said in a statement that the indictment stems from a September 2017 incident in which Nissen was indirectly involved. Department officials “became concerned” about the allegations and turned the investigation over to the Kentucky State Police, whose investigators in turn gave their findings to Shelly Alvey, the commonwealth attorney for Bullitt County.

The findings led Alvey to seek and obtain Nissen’s indictment.

Alvey told WLKY that the victim went to Hillview police officers to report she’d been raped by an officer in another Bullitt County department. Detectives interviewed the woman about the allegations.

“(Nissen) agreed to take her home, and the allegation is that when he left the police department, he actually drove her to the home of the alleged perpetrator,” Alvey told the news station.

From there, Nissen and the other officer, whose name has not been made public, took the woman to Wal-Mart, where they pooled their money to buy her a phone, Alvey told The Pioneer News, Bullitt County’s community newspaper.

“Bill” was at a west Columbus library with his granddaughter. He was waiting outside to leave when he heard police sirens. He tells us he looked around and saw a man with his hand in his waistband running toward him.

“Bill” assessed the situation as fast as he could, cane in hand. He heard officers yelling multiple times to drop the gun. “Bill” says with officers lagging a bit behind the suspect he did what he could to help them nab the armed man.

Bill stuck out a back leg to trip the suspect who was running from police. That move likely saved the 18-year-old suspect’s life. It also allowed police to catch up to him to make the arrest.

Police recovered a Glock 9 MM pistol with a high capacity extended clip containing 29 rounds. The suspect, with a lengthy criminal record, went back to jail. No one was injured.
