Sioux City Iowa —- Jury deliberations have concluded for the day in the attempted murder trial of Melvin Spencer.
Twenty-five-year-old Spencer is accused of shooting at Deputy Mike Lenz, in February, following a high-speed chase that ended near the Sioux Gateway Airport.
Before deliberations began Friday, the jury heard from Lenz about the night of the shooting.Dramatic moments shown in court Friday of Melvin Spencer shooting at a Woodbury County deputy on the night of February 26th.
“I vividly remember the flash and the smoke from the gun,” said Mike Lenz, a deputy with the Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office. “At that point, I was scared for my life.”
It was a situation Deputy Mike Lenz was put into when assisting another deputy following a high-speed chase with Spencer.
It ended when the car he was driving, got stuck in a ditch near the Sioux Gateway Airport.
“I didn’t even have time to put my vehicle into park and the suspect driving the vehicle reached out of the drivers window and I noticed he was wearing a red jacket and he started firing rounds at me with a handgun,” said Lenz.
That’s when Lenz said he got below his dashboard for safety and called for help on his radio.
When the rounds stopped…
“I took a position at the hinge of my door and took aim at the suspect,” said Lenz. “And, did you return fire?” asked PJ Jennings, a prosecutor. “I did return fire.”
Lenz says Spencer fired another round as Lenz made his way to the back of the car.
Spencer then ran southbound.
Spencer’s brother, who was in the car with him during the pursuit unarmed, was shot in the jaw during the gunfire.
Lenz and a Sergeant Bluff police officer had to wait before giving him medical attention.
“Due to the subject in red running and he was still in my perception still considered armed and I had no idea where he was.”
Melvin Spencer was tracked down three hours later.
Deliberations in the trial will continue Monday morning at nine.
