Recommended Posts

A Las Vegas Police Officer fatally shot a suspect after he pulled a handgun from a nearby bush during questioning after a traffic accident.

Two officer-worn body cameras captured the shooting. Watch the entire incident unfold in the footage above.

Vegas Police Officer Forced to Shoot

A three-car collision occurred at approximately 7:31 a.m. on Oct. 10, police said. Las Vegas Metro Police Department traffic officer Kenneth Pillette and officer Chad Betts arrived at the scene.

According to police, two of the drivers involved said at the at-fault driver, later identified as 21-year-old Kenneth Busse, was possibly impaired. With that information, Betts asks Busse to complete a field sobriety test. Body camera footage shows Busse refusing.

Betts attempts to take Busse into custody. Before he can, Busse quickly moves to a small bush approximately 12 yards away.

Body camera footage shows Busse reaching into the bush and emerging with a black handgun. Police said he had hidden the handgun there prior to officers arriving on scene.

Officer Betts runs for cover upon seeing the handgun. Police said Busse chambered a round in his firearm and aimed it towards the officers during that time.

Pillette opens fire first with his 9mm Glock 17, with Busse quickly returning fire. Busse fired one shot in total, according to police.

With Busse still focused on Pillette, Betts aims his 40mm Glock 22 from behind cover and gets two clear shots off. The first bullet hits Busse in the chest, causing him to fall to the ground.

Police said medical personnel responded to the scene and pronounced Busse deceased.
