Fatal incident began when the two soldiers pulled over the SUV
The fatal incident began when the two soldiers pulled over the SUV in suburban Chicago at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday because the lights were out, according to WLS-TV.
“I thought they were on – that they come on automatically,” the 21-year-old behind the wheel said when asked if she forgot to turn on the lights. He will then be asked to get out of the SUV.
The soldier then asks his partner to put a man in the passenger seat – later identified as Darren Green Jr., 30 – to exit the vehicle.
But things take a terrible turn when the soldier on the left yells, “Hey, gun! Gun! Don’t move … don’t move! ”
Then he calls for help, but Green sits in the driver’s seat and takes off after a woman and a child in the backseat also come out, as seen in the video. The two soldiers were dragged by the SUV to a nearby bus shelter.
At one point a shot was fired from Green’s pistol which hit him in the head and killed him, police said. Officials said soldiers who had not been hit by gunfire did not fire their weapons.
Both were treated at a local hospital for minor injuries and were released.
Police say they gave Green’s family a chance to watch the video before the 18-minute clip was released to the public.
The incident is under investigation by the Cook County District Attorney’s Office, according to WLS-TV.
