LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - LMPD has released the body camera footage from Sunday's incident where an alleged armed suspect was shot and killed by two officers.
In a press conference Monday evening, Maj. Frank Hardison said the suspect, who was identified Monday night as 24-year-old Corey Antonio Boykin Jr., came out of a business on Fern Valley Road with a gun. The video appears to show two officers fire at least five shots as Boykin opens the door of the business. Boykin was transported to University Hospital, where he died just before 11 p.m. His official cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds.
The officers, who have now been identified as John Dillon and Nick Ulery, entered the business the suspect left and found someone tied up who appeared to have been pistol-whipped.
"It is only through a thorough and complete investigation that we can fully ensure that deadly force was justified and that all of our policies and procedures and training were followed," LMPD Chief Steve Conrad said.
Dillon and Ulery are both 7th Division officers. Ulery had one year of service and Dillon had two years. They've both been placed on administrative leave.
While the body cameras offer several angles of what happened, Hardison said there are surveillance cameras that will be studied as well.
