Security camera footage released this week captures the moment a deputy in Biloxi, Mississippi, fires in midair as he falls over backward, retreating from a man with a knife.
On Jan. 15, Harrison County Sheriff’s Deputy Bobby Jackson confronted Reginald Johnson outside a Biloxi courthouse after Johnson had attacked several people in the streets nearby. Johnson rushed at Jackson while brandishing a knife as Jackson retreated. The deputy tripped, but as surveillance video obtained by the Sun Herald shows, he drew his pistol, aimed, and fired at the man as he fell.
Johnson falls on Jackson, who shoots Johnson at least three more times on the ground as they briefly wrestle with each other. Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene, while Jackson suffered a stab wound in the leg.
