Authorities in North Carolina released police dash cam footage showing two officers fatally shooting an armed woman who initially fired her gun at them last month.
The video is a recording of an incident that took place on Interstate 40 on the morning of July 8 near Newton Grove, North Carolina.
In the footage, an officer pulls over off the highway where he sees a woman, 50-year-old Tina Renee Medlin, lying face down on the grass in front of a crashed vehicle.
The dramatic 80-second clip shows an officer get out of his cruiser and approach Medlin.
As the officer begins to walk toward Medlin, he is warned by a witness on the scene that she is armed.
When the officer demands that Medlin show her hands, she hesitates.
Medlin is seen in the video getting on her feet with one of her hands concealed. Moments later, she flashes her gun and starts shooting.
The officer and another law enforcement agent not pictured in the footage return fire and strike her twice.
Medlin was rushed to a local hospital, according to WNCN-TV.
Initial reports indicated that she died at the scene, but these claims were false.
