VIDEO: Dash cam shows Middlefield police shooting

(Middlefield) - Dramatic dash-cam video shows the dramatic and frightening traffic stop that led two Middlefield Police officers to shoot and kill the man who fired on them with an assault rifle.

The video is courtesy of Channel 3 News and is disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised...

Officers Brandon Savage and Erin Thomas had pulled James Gilkerson over while on patrol March 10. Gilkerson exited his vehicle and started firing at their patrol car.

At one point he yells "Kill me! Kill me!" 

Both officers received non life-threatening gunshot wounds, and did return fire killing Gilkerson.

In a report, Geauga County Prosecutor James Flaiz says Gilkerson was in possession of high-powered weapons and instructional books and manuals on how to blow things up.

Flaiz says he can only speculate what Gilkerson planned to do with all the items that were confiscated from his vehicle.
