Police dash cam footage catches the action as Maquoketa, Iowa, police officer Brendan Zeimet engages in a gun battle with a suspect, Aaron E. Scott earlier this month. Officer Zeimet was hit in the arm and later treated for his injuries. Scott suffered a non-lethal shot to leg before speeding away from the scene. He was later found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Sgt. Brendan Zeimet saw the suspect vehicle parked facing the wrong direction and stopped to investigate when Suspect Scott suddenly pulled out an SKS assault rifle.
Scott responded by shooting at least 14 times and as many as 19 times. At least seven of Scott’s shots penetrated his own truck door and five or six hit Sgt. Zeimet’s squad car, disabling it.
