Video shows motorist point gun before being shot by police
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Video from a high-speed chase in April shows a New York man point a gun at officers before officers shot and killed him.
The video was released Tuesday by the state attorney general’s office.
Bradley Pullman was killed by officers after the April 26 chase on Route 46. Police said the 48-year-old Queens resident fled after allegedly performing an illegal U-turn in his Lexus on the state highway, which runs east-west and is bordered by hotels and retail establishments.
Videos showed the pursuit over several minutes on the rainy afternoon before Pullman slowed and stopped near an on-ramp to Interstate 80 in Wayne, surrounded by six police cars from the towns of Fairfield, Mountain Lakes and Wayne.
He can be seen pointing a gun out the partially opened driver’s side door moments before officers open fire.
Police said they recovered a loaded Cobra .380-caliber pistol in Pullman’s car.
The shooting is under investigation by the attorney general’s office, as required by law.
