Kansas City (CBS) - Kansas City, KS police released video from a police dashboard camera Wednesday of a deadly shootout.
A grand jury cleared officers of any wrongdoing in the Sept. 6 incident at a south Kansas City park.
Officers responded to a report of a car crashing into a tree at Isler Park, with the driver walking off.
Officer Eric Turner's dash-cam shows a short interaction, with the man casually approaching, then calmly raising a handgun, pulling back its slide and firing.
A second officer's dash cam shows Turner taking cover behind his patrol car door.
The second officer runs forward to assist, the suspect continuing to point a gun at them even after he had been shot and fallen to the ground.
The driver, 36-year-old exae chavez-gutierrez, died in the exchange. The officers, with 40 years combined experience, survived without a single gunshot.
The chief of police commented in his blog Wednesday, saying, "I am releasing this video to show you the dangers KCPD officers face daily. We also are committed to being transparent. No officer ever wants to kill another human being, but as you can see in the video, sometimes they are left with no choice."
Police say may never know why the man fired his gun.
They say a tox screen showed marijuna and alcohol in his system, but nothing else to explain his behavior.
