Louisville Metro Police have released body cam video following the shooting of Bruce Warrick, 38, on Wednesday by a police officer.
Warrick was shot in the abdomen in the 2600 block of Magazine Street. He underwent surgery Thursday to remove organs and is on a ventilator in the intensive care unit of University of Louisville Hospital awaiting further surgeries.
The camera footage shows police searching a home with guns out when Officer Sarah Stumler approaches a box spring leaning against the wall. Peeking behind the box spring, she sees Warrick hiding. Stumler shouts, “Show your hands,” before almost immediately discharging her weapon.
She fires once and then is heard saying, “Shit.”
Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer issued a statement after the shooting.
