Video shows suspect being shot by officer on Oklahoma bus


OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Bus surveillance video shows a carjacking suspect jumping onto an Oklahoma City bus to escape police, ordering frightened passengers to leave the vehicle then trying to grab one officer’s weapon before being shot dead by another officer.

Police say 42-year-old Miguel Angel Chavez-Angles hijacked a car on June 24 then locked himself inside an auto repair shop before boarding the bus. Officers were initially investigating a vandalism complaint.

The video released Monday by the Oklahoma City Police Department shows Chavez grabbing for Officer Heather Lane’s gun, then wrestling her to the floor of the bus. Officer Daniel Carli boards and shoots Chavez several times.

Television station KOCO reported Tuesday that the officers are on paid administrative leave.

No bystanders were hurt.
