Police release body-cam video of Norman officer-involved shooting

FOX8 investigates Greensboro police body camera policy days after officer-involved shooting

The two-minute video from the injured officer shows the confrontation that took place inside the Amazon Barber Shop with 21-year-old Jehad Eid, who later died at a hospital. Police say Eid fired nine rounds from his handgun at them after they came to the business when his family reported he'd threatened them and possessed a firearm.

The injured officer was taken to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital where he was in fair condition.

Vladimir Shteynberg, the barbershop owner, said that two barbers and a teenage boy who hung around the shop after school were among those shot. One said that he didn't know how he was shot, whether it was by Eid or by the police.

Shortly before 3 a.m., officers were dispatched to the 600 block of Jackson Street regarding a vandalism call, police said.

Investigators say five other people, including the suspect and a minor, were wounded in the shooting.

The officers' investigation led them to a nearby barbershop, where police "made contact with several individuals. and shots were exchanged". Both officers then draw their guns and begin shooting at the back corner. A police officer can also be seen getting a shield and preparing to enter the barbershop. The uniformed male officer wearing the camera and a female officer in plainclothes who didn't have a camera went inside.

Video footage captured by a passerby shows the officer, who had been shot in the leg, crawling out of the barbershop and onto the sidewalk. The video shows the incident from a significant distance and at an angle that makes it hard for the full incident and subject's weapon to be seen.

One of the shop's barbers who spoke at the meeting identified himself as Chad and said he was the person being handcuffed in the video.

Once the shooting broke out, he said police pushed him into the line of fire while they ducked for cover.

At least two other people who said they were wounded in the shooting were at the meeting, and Chad said that they were unable to work now due to their injuries. "We understand the consequences of Jehad's actions".
