The Tulsa Police Department has release dashcam video of wanted suspect, Madison Dickson, being run over by a patrol unit. Police say Dickson was struck and killed by a patrol vehicle during a shootout with officers. Dickson allegedly fired several shots at police before being run over. Dickson was wanted after a string of crimes in the Tulsa area, including several shootings, one of which took place in midtown.
In the final seconds of footage, the officer in the vehicle — later identified as Jonathan Grafton — drives it over the sidewalk and runs over Dickson.
Dickson died after being struck by the patrol car, according to the news station.
Officers Kayla Johnson and Detective Ronnie Leatherman, also present during the incident, fired their guns during the exchange, Tulsa World reported.
Grafton, who has been with the Tulsa Police Department for six years, was on paid administrative leave in the wake of the fatal incident. He is facing an investigation into his use of deadly force, according to the newspaper.
Less than two days before her death, police believe Dickson shot a man in the head. He kept driving despite his injury and ran into a sport utility vehicle on March 16, Tulsa World reported.
Dickson was additionally accused of discharging a firearm during a March 11 theft at a Best Buy store.
The following day, Dickson reportedly shot a woman in the arm outside a Walgreens.
Police charged her with two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, shooting with intent to kill, unauthorized use of a vehicle, attempted larceny and discharging a firearm in a public place, according to court records.
Earlier this year Dickson had dropped out of a drug-treatment program. Brittany Stieber, who befriended Dickson during treatment, in part blamed her string of crimes on her struggle with substances.
“Deep down, she was a good person,” Stieber told Tulsa World. “Drugs just got the best of her. The enemy got the best of her.”
