Jan 23, 2020, 1:46 PM | Updated: 2:05 pm

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Salt Lake City police released body camera video Thursday of an officer involved shooting that happened Jan. 8.

The shooting was the department’s first officer-involved critical incident of 2020, authorities said. It occurred at 110 N. 1460 West as officers responded to a call of a stolen red Ford Mustang GT.

Police opened fire on the suspect, identified as Tyler Webster, 20, after he reportedly drove the stolen vehicle toward them.

The footage doesn’t show the actual shooting, but the gun shots can be heard. Moments after the shots, one of the officers commands the suspect in the Ford to get out of the car.

Webster can be heard screaming after being shot. One of the authorities at the scene, apparently speaking to dispatch, says, “Officers are fine. He’s trying to run into officers. Let me see your hands now!”

Webster can be heard apologizing to police and screaming he’s paralyzed.

The second body cam video shows the officer in the passenger’s seat of the patrol car as police follow after the Mustang driving in reverse.

Webster survived and was taken to the hospital. He has since been taken into custody. Police said he has a criminal history that involves convictions for unlawful activity with a minor, disorderly conduct and assault.

The investigation is being conducted by Unified Police Department and the District Attorney’s office.
