Dramatic dashcam video shows August police shooting

Posted: Updated:
SISTERS, OR (KPTV) -

Dashcam video released Tuesday shows a dramatic chase and shooting involving Oregon State Police troopers.

The shooting happened in late August near Sisters.

Two troopers were investigating a traffic complaint when they said William Hall, a Texas man, pointed a gun at them and sped away.

The dashcam video showed troopers chasing after him through the town of Sisters.

They eventually forced him to stop by using spike strips.

When Hall finally pulled over, troopers told him to drop the gun, and then opened fire.

Hall died in the gunfire, but a district attorney determined his death came from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
