SOURCE: “Body camera footage from a deadly officer-involved shooting has been released, giving insight into how an Appleton, Wisconsin firefighter was slain while attempting to provide care.

Last month, Appleton firefighter Mitch Lundgaard was fatally shot by 47-year-old Ruben Houston, who was being treated by medical personnel after he was found unresponsive on a bus and believed to have suffered an overdose.

Given Narcan and taken off the bus, Houston was not checked for possible weapons prior to treatment and refused to be patted down by officers once he was conscious.

Eventually, Houston became irate and drew his sidearm from a snap holster under his shirt, chambered a round, and opened fire.

Failing to react in time, police officers ran around the other side of the bus. They eventually returned fire, but not before Houston succeeded in shooting Lundgaard and used a bystander as a human shield.

A total of 24 shots were fired during the 30-second exchange and Houston later succumbed to his wounds at a nearby hospital.

According to the Post Crescent, Outagamie County District Attorney Melinda Tempelis made an announcement on Thursday stating that the officers’ use of deadly force was justified.
