Police have released video, showing the moment an officer shot dead a woman when she came after him with an ax. The video, recorded from Gallatin Police officer James Spray’s (top left) vest, shows the cop getting out of his cruiser at the house where another officer had requested back-up. Almost as soon as he has opened his door, Spray’s gun is out and aimed at 40-year-old Laronda Sweatt (bottom left) who is walking towards him with a medieval-style ax. Spray is then heard ordering her over and over again to drop the weapon, but she refuses and continues to walk towards him. Eventually he fires two shots at her and she falls to the ground.
