LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville Metro Police Department officials on Wednesday released dramatic body-camera video from three officers involved in a shootout with a robbery suspect who later died from his injuries.
Demonjhea Jordan, 21, of Jeffersonville, Indiana, died from gunshot wounds at University of Louisville Hospital after he was shot in the 500 block of 29th Street on Tuesday, Jefferson County Deputy Coroner Wayne Pryse said.
One officer in pursuit of Jordan fired multiple shots from inside his cruiser, through the windshield, before he got out of the car. After Jordan went down, another officer went down to the ground, surrounded by colleagues, wondering if he'd been hit. But Aaron Crowell, who leads LMPD's Public Integrity Unity, said none of the officers had been shot.
"Officers are trained to deal with threats with whatever tools they have," Crowell said.
LMPD Chief Steve Conrad said the confrontation with officers started around noon Tuesday after a robbery was reported at the Metro PCS store at 2600 W. Market Stree
Officers who responded put out a description of the suspect. Conrad said 1st Division officers spotted Jordan, who matched that description, walking in the 500 block of N. 29th Street, about a block from their station.
Jordan was wounded during an exchange of gunfire with the officers and died later Tuesday afternoon at the hospital.

They are traditional African names. No, I could not keep a straight face.
Jesus, enough already!
According to the story this guy was shooting at the cops too. After a pursuit. Sorry but if you pop a round at a cop, especially during the course of fleeing, you can’t complain about the amount of return fire you get.

Geez Mom, if you’d done a better job of raising your feral spawn, he would not have gotten himself killed in a shootout with police officers who were defending themselves from getting shot with your son’s bullets.
If you want sympathy, look in the dictionary between sh!t and syphilis.
