Jefferson County, Illinois — On Tuesday, May 9, 2023 at approximately 3:00 a.m. on Interstate 64 eastbound at mile post 72, an ISP Trooper stopped to assist a stranded motorist on the right shoulder. Upon arrival, the Trooper encountered 23-year-old Brandon Griffin of Albuquerque, NM and 31-year-old Christine Santos in the vehicle. A second ISP Officer arrived for routine assistance a short time later. While on scene, an altercation occurred during which gunfire was exchanged between Griffin and a responding officer. A 16-year ISP officer suffered serious, although non-life threatening, injuries after being shot during the altercation and is being treated at a regional hospital. Griffin was pronounced deceased on scene by Jefferson County Coroner’s Office personnel. The other involved Trooper and female passenger were uninjured. Initially, all lanes of Interstate 64 eastbound were closed, but were reopened at approximately 6:25 a.m. Eastbound lanes were temporarily shut down again at 7:48 a.m. as part of the investigation, but reopened at 8:53 a.m.

THESE POOR COPS,THIS IS GEORGE SOROS FUNDED ANTIFA AND BLM GARBAGE PEOPLE,DONT HAVE ANY RESPECT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT,FAILED PARENTS AND KIDS
Ridiculous. Use force. If your effecting an arrest control the situation and suspect.
I can understand why many cops are very nervious when they have engage with people.
Good that was not a single cop patrol else he would have been dead.
He pointed the gun at his own head at first. Watch close, the first thing he tried is shooting himself when he got the gun. The whole situation was cary af. Im sure she helped him get the gun inside the car. That dude was mentally ill 100%
Cops really need to do a better job than this. Far too slow to draw, you have to expect that everyone has a gun and will use it, so be prepared to draw early and shoot early.
Total incompetents. He NEVER should have been allowed to get in that car without some lead in his a55. Pansy Policing CAUSED by the COURTS, The ACLU and the media. THEY caused this
IDIOT COPS! "Gee, Christine…..gee, Christine, please stop….". WUSSIFIED cops ALLOWED this to happen by their WOKETARD attitude. She should have been elbowed in the face at the get-go when she refused to step back – OVER AND OVER refusing to step back. NITWIT cops.
3:19 почему трусливый полицай не стреляет?
Glad to hear the Trooper is OK and released from the Hospital. The return fire showed how Good Training likely saved these Troopers lives. I can't thank these Officers enough for keeping us safe from Morons like this.
That 20-something guy acted like a psychopath, and the women, who I first thought was a minor, turns out she's 30-something. What a crazy couple of weirdos. I was hoping the description would explain if maybe they were escaped cultists, but it talks about traffic congestion instead. Yeah, they acted a lot like cultists.
I'm constantly amazed at how d.u.m.b.s.h.i.t.s. are so willing to die for nothing.
Probably Maga nut jobs!
weak dwarfy girly officers using only fingers to hold dude. can't believe they let him near the car. wtf…
maybe that retarded lame hat will help the cop lol
Holy shit that officer really actually did the Hollywood “dive in front of your friend to block a bullet for him” thing, and it worked. Incredible.
Wow, a rare whyte sighting, not the usual suspects for once.😅😮😂
Crazy how the officer didnt make sure that he neutralised the threat
lame showing 1/2 the video…
20 years in Law Enforcement, now retired, and this shit pisses me off. He was wanted on a nationwide warrant for weapons charges she has similar and the cop found the info out and went to put him into cuffs. Once the resistance started he should have been put on the ground hard. None of this pussyfooting around. If not or you can’t disengage, get some space, and put him at gunpoint and if he moves to that car you give him high speed lead poisoning. Once the shooting started a mag dump was in order. Those two cops are lucky to be alive.
where can i find the full video?
Oh so, it’s all because the cops ego and him not liking someone’s attitude.
