LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A southern Indiana police department is using body cam video to show the public how a shooting quickly escalated.

The video -- shown above -- portrays an officer arriving on the scene and hearing the first shots. The footage shows the dramatic moments leading up to, and during, gunfire.

It was taken by an Evansville officer responding to a call at a gas station parking lot where a suspect allegedly opened fire. The officer was struck more than once, but is expected to recover.
