San Diego police officers were involved in a shooting at police headquarters
A 25-year-old Spanish man was arrested and was sitting in the back of a patrol car. On the way back to headquarters, he managed to escape his handcuffs and get a gun in the car
Officers put Bergman in a patrol SUV and took him to police headquarters, where the real drama started.
When they returned to the police station, they left him in the backseat while an officer filled out the administration records.
In an 11-minute video you can see an officer opening the passenger door on the driver’s side before closing it immediately.
Somehow Bergman managed to take a hand out of his handcuffs and then broke through a dividing line between the rear seat and the boot.
He was then able to take a gun from an officer’s backpack stored there.
Officers walking back to the car saw the weapon and ordered Bergman to drop it, but he refused.
“He has a gun. He’s got a gun, “said one officer while the police surrounded the vehicle.
“We don’t want to shoot you. Nobody wants to shoot you, ”the officer hears.
