Stabbing Suspect Gets Shot After Lunging At a Female Police Officer With a Knife

* (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) *
New York — The New York Attorney General Letitia James released police body-camera footage from the fatal shooting of 33-year-old Joshua De’Miguel Kavota by a Saranac Lake Village Police officer. On the morning of June 29th Saranac Lake police officers responded to reports of a stabbing at a local Stewart’s Shop. The footage, taken from the bodycam on Saranac Lake police Officer Gabrielle Beebe, shows Beebe and her partner approach Kavota outside the Stewart’s Shop. In the video, Beebe repeatedly asks Kavota to hand over a knife. Kavota refuses and says, “I would be careful what you wish…”.

After the brief exchange between Beebe and Kavota, the video shows Kavota take the knife out of his pocket and charge at Beebe, who screamed and stumbled backward. Beebe fell backward and, within a few seconds, it appears that her partner, Officer Aaron Sharlow, fired off two rounds from his gun at Kavota, who then fell to the parking lot. Beebe is heard sobbing as she catches her breath. She took her gun out and pointed it in Kavota’s direction. The knife appeared to be a fixed-blade kitchen knife with a wooden handle. The footage shows the knife on the ground at Beebe’s feet.

Seconds later, Kavota can be seen lying on the pavement, before both officers attempt to administer first aid. Later in the video, Officer Sharlow says he shot Kavota two times in the chest during the attack. An ambulance arrives a short time later, after which the video ends. Kavota was later pronounced dead after being transported to Adirondack Medical Center. Both officers have been placed on administrative leave during the investigation. No further information as to the findings of the investigation has been released.

  1. Is she a cop or a kindergarten teacher??? “Show me the knife cmon hand it over” bro he just stabbed someone what an absolutely useless officer. Only reason she’s alive is because of her backup

  2. Lots of big man comments from many that have probably never brandished a firearm in their lives let alone fire one or placed within the same situations. I’m normally against women in law enforcement. However, this is not one of those times. Did her error almost cost her her life? Hard to say given that she does have some protection. If this was her first engagement then it’s not uncommon to be caught off guard. No amount of training can prepare you for a real life scenario once adrenaline kicks in. Sure there’s training adrenaline but under real life threatening adrenaline each person reacts differently. She’s human and cops aren’t perfected robots. I hope she can recover, learn and have a fine career

  3. before people criticize i would love to see yalls reaction to getting rushed by someone with the look in their eyes that they wanna seriously take you out its life changing and training cant really prepare you for it you gotta be a special kind of dummy to not react emotionally to stuff like that

  4. Some people are just not cut out for that line of work. Unfortunately it takes a situation like this to figure out who is or isn't in the right profession.

  5. she stayed in a constant state of panic and haste through this whole thing. Glad she made it out and finished the job, but maybe this position isnt quite her fit.

  6. We all already seen this and the last video. Upload some stuff we haven’t already seen, stuff that hasn’t been uploaded by 100 channels already?
