MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Tuesday, April 30, was day two in the trial of a man accused of shooting a Mobile police officer and allegedly shooting at several others.
FOX10 News obtained the surveillance video shown in court, along with some additional surveillance video from that night. Some of what you see may be disturbing.
Day two of Jackeith Harrison's trial began with testimony from the police officer he's accused of shooting. Officer Chad Wynne with Mobile Police Department talked about what happened on that March night in 2012. Even more riveting, however, was the body cam video that was played in court.
The video, which lasts around seven minutes, shows Wynne being put into a police cruiser and taken to the hospital after he was shot. Wynne testified he didn't know the body cam was on. You hear Wynne constantly moaning in pain, almost to the point of screaming, when he gets to USA Medical Center.
Wynne's doctor testified that being rushed to the hospital by officers, rather than waiting for an ambulance, was a life saving move.
Several police officers who responded to the midtown Winn-Dixie robbery also testified that the suspects shot at them.
The jury was shown several views from surveillance video in the store. One part of the video shows the back of the store, where prosecutors said Harrison and Ronald Crear were trying to escape.
Police testimony revealed that the two came out the back door shooting. Officers opened fire, hitting Crear. Officers said they then yelled for Harrison to come out with his hands up.
In the video, you see Harrison put one hand out, then the other. Then officers demanded him to crawl on the ground to them. Harrison was then taken into custody. Crear was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Testimony got heated between defense attorney Bob Clark and some of the officers testifying as Clark tried to pick apart what the officers said happened.
Harrison is facing five counts of attempted murder along with one count of robbery.
