Shots Fired! Shots Fired!' Dash-Cam Rolls as Man Opens Fire on Police

Officers returned fire and killed the gunman.

Police in Tomah, WI have been cleared after they shot and killed a man who opened fire on them during a wild police chase at the end of April. One of the officers was hurt in the incident, which was all captured on a police cruiser's dash-cam:

The Toma Journal reports the man was suspected of double-digit drive-by shootings in Wisconsin and Illinois:

The Monroe County District Attorney has determined four Tomah police officers acted appropriately last month when they killed a man who shot at them during a traffic stop. District Attorney Dan Cary said Tuesday the officers acted with “tremendous courage in the face of life-threatening gunfire” April 22 when they fatally shot 28-year-old Seth M. McCloskey of Ohio.

On administrative leave since the shooting, the officers have been cleared to return to work as early as Thursday.

McCloskey was a suspect in an earlier drive-by shooting in Tomah in which no one was hurt. Police have said he may be linked to as many as 10 other seemingly random drive-by shootings across Wisconsin and Illinois.

Authorities held a press conference Tuesday where they released squad car video footage of the Tomah shooting that shows McCloskey calmly exit his truck, point a handgun directly at police and open fire moments after being pulled over on Saratoga Street.
