Bodycam footage released by a Wisconsin police department shows officers engaged in a gun battle with a man who they had just administered Narcan and it ends with an innocent bystander and the gunman being shot dead.
Officer Paul Christensen and Sgt. Christopher Biese exchanged shots with 47-year-old Ruben Houston of Wausau on May 15 outside of Appleton’s downtown transit center. Christensen was wounded, along with a bystander. Both have been released from the hospital.
Appleton firefighter Mitchell Lundgaard, 36, was shot and died of his injuries at a hospital.
Footage shows the moment when Houston opened fire on the responding officers. He pulls out a gun and opens fire before the officer runs off and gets in a position to return fire.
Houston was shot several times and later died at a hospital. He had been out on bond for drug charges.
