BREAKING: Dash cam video released of officer-involved shooting

Posted: Updated:

The Cedar Rapids Police Department has released the video of an officer-involved shooting that left a man paralyzed.
Just this week, a grand jury ruled the officer from the shooting Lucas Jones will not face charges for using deadly force against Jerime "Danky" Mitchell.
We are pouring through the video and are breaking it down. 

The video has a viewpoint from inside Officer Jones patrol car looking out of the windshield. 

You can see Officer Jones is following a red truck which belongs to Jerime Mitchell. 

Officer Jones says he was pulling over Mitchell because there were no lights over his license plate. 

Police lights are on as Officer Jones follows Mitchell. 

Mitchell breaks near Coe College and moments later you can see Officer Jones walking up to his drivers side window. 

Officer Jones and Mitchell begin to talk but you cannot hear what they are saying because the Cedar Rapids Police Department says Jones microphone was not working. 

Jones says he could smell marijuana coming from Mitchell's car which is why he asked him to step out of the truck. 

In the video you can see Officer Jones working to handcuff Mitchell. 

The two eventually go to the ground and appear to be fighting, Officer Jones reaches for a button on his belt and releases his K9 officer. 

You can hear the dog barking and see it running towards the two.  

Mitchell gets back in his truck with Officer Jones still hanging on him, Jones says he was stuck. 
Moments later you can see him grab his gun and fire it towards Mitchell, one of those shots paralyzing him. 

Mitchell drives off and Officer Jones can be heard letting the department know he fired his gun, saying "shots fired."

Backup arrives and can be seen quickly turning around to follow Mitchell. 

Mitchell went on to crash into a police SUV and some cars in a Coe College parking lot where he was ultimately found unresponsive.
