Rockford, Illinois — Winnebago County sheriff’s office released body camera footage that showed Faustin Guetigo’s final moments before the 27-year-old was fatally shot. The Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office says the situation began Saturday afternoon, after Faustin’s wife, Rose Ndoroum called police after an argument led to a fight. A deputy arrived at the residence and confronted Guetigo outside of the home. Guetigo is seen repeatedly pulling away from the deputy to avoid being arrested. Guetigo then ran inside the home.
Two deputies entered the house using a key, one held a taser and the other with a firearm. The pair located Guetigo in the basement holding a metal pipe. The officers say they asked the suspect to drop the pipe at least three times. Investigators say the man ran up the stairs and a deputy identified as Sergeant Broullard fired his gun. Guetigo continued charging and hit Broullard on the head with the pipe, knocking him unconscious. Another deputy fired, and provided emergency care. Guetigo died at the hospital. Sgt. Broullard was treated and released.
