Videos released of man with rifle ambushing officers in Indiana


Surveillance footage out of Indiana has been released by Evansville Police after officers became involved in an armed standoff with a suspect last week.

51-year-old Barry Freeman was killed after a nearly hour-long engagement with police, utilizing a carbine and a shotgun against the lawmen until he was killed by two rounds to the chest from an Evansville detective.

During the standoff, a neighbor was killed after Freeman mistook him for a police officer. It is believed that the resident was checking on members of his community.

Aside from the gunman and collateral casualty, several law enforcement vehicles were hit, including one police cruiser with over 23 bullet holes in it. Houses and businesses were damaged as well.

Interestingly enough, Freeman appeared to only target police, as he never engaged passing civilian vehicles.

According to CBS News, the surveillance footage came from a neighbor’s home, and other video came from police body cameras.
