Authorities released Eugene police body camera footage in the Jan. 11, 2019 fatal shooting of Charles Landeros outside Cascade Middle School.
EUGENE, Ore. – As police attempted to place Charlie Landeros under arrest after removing him from Cascade Middle School amidst a child custody dispute January 11, Landeros pulled a 9mm handgun from a hoster and pointed the weapon at Officer Steve Timm, investigators determined based on video evidence and witness statements.
As Officer Aaron Johns tried to take control of the gun, Landeros again pointed the gun at the school resource officer and fired two shots, investigators said.
Officer Timm recognized that the situation was dangerous and needed to be controlled. Both were in fear of their own death or the death of other bystanders or students in the area,” District Attorney Patty Perlow wrote. “Officer Johns said he knew that if he let go of Landeros’ hand in the struggle, they were going to be killed. Officer Timm fired one bullet directly at Charles Landeros, striking Landeros in the temple, which was the cause of death.

On June 12, 2016, what began as an active shooter incident when a lone gunman entered the Pulse nightclub in Orlando and began shooting innocent club goers transitioned into a barricaded-suspect-with-hostages incident. The night was horrific, and by morning the Pulse tragedy had become the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil since September 11, 2001. Ultimately at least one out of every three people in Pulse was either wounded or killed, and one hundred two innocent people had been shot: 49 of them killed, 53 injured.
As the scene at Pulse unfolded law enforcement was faced with many monumental tasks. Among them was collecting, processing, and swiftly taking appropriate action in response to information.
At 3:25 am, as victims were actively being evaluated and resuscitated at Orlando Regional Medical Center, a report was issued indicating that gunfire had been heard in the emergency room lobby. The hospital’s “code silver” active shooter plan was implemented and heavily armed police officers and sheriff’s deputies rapidly arrived and began combing the hospital for possible threats. Staff closed doors and remained in place while continuing to provide patient care, as portable X-ray machines were used to barricade the trauma resuscitation room doors and prevent entry.
Initial reports stated that one of the victims that had been transferred to the hospital was in fact a second shooter at the club. This allegation was later determined to be false, but the report led to an incredibly tense scene at the hospital. But finally, approximately 45 minutes after it began, the code silver alert and lockdown were lifted.
This body-worn camera footage shows the manhunt for the non-existent second shooter, beginning just before the report of his existence came over the radio and ending with the “capture” of a terrifically unlucky Pulse victim and the stand-down of responding officers.
Of note, many physicians and nurses continued to move from room to room of the emergency department during the lockdown, caring for patients despite the risk of personal injury.
A Thanksgiving night shooting at Alabama’s largest enclosed mall left a gunman dead and two people — including a 12-year-old girl — injured, authorities said, and sent terrified shoppers running for safety. The incident at the Riverchase Galleria in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover started with a fight between an 18-year-old and the 21-year-old gunman, police said. Police do not know how the confrontation began, but “we do not believe at this point the 18-year-old was armed,” Hoover police Capt. Gregg Rector said. The gunman opened fire, shooting the teen twice in the torso, according to police. An armed Hoover police officer who was working security at the mall confronted the gunman as he ran away from the scene and fatally shot him, police said. A 12-year-old girl described by police as a bystander also was shot once, but it’s unclear by whom, Rector said. Both of the injured were taken to hospitals. The girl has had surgery and “does not have life-threatening injuries,” Rector told CNN. Her condition was stable Friday morning, police said. The injured 18-year-old was in serious condition when an ambulance took him to the hospital, police said.
