Dramatic bodycam footage shows the moments surrounding a February shooting involving Kentucky police and an armed woman.
The Louisville Police Department responded to a mental health complaint when they encountered 52-year-old Candy Marie Basil.
Police said Basil reportedly waved a gun at neighbors and hit a vehicle with it before pointing the weapon at officers on February 19.
Basil, who has a history of mental health issues, was shot after police repeatedly yelled at her to drop the weapon and she refused.
Instead, the gun-toting woman walked toward officers.
This is when Officer Donald Brian Wyatt, a 19-year-veteran, opened fire.
Officers immediately provided medical treatment to Basil before she was taken to the University of Louisville Hospital.
She was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment of a police officer and one count of menacing.
The officer-involved shooting remains under investigation by Kentucky State Patrol’s Incident Response Team.
