Dashcam footage show officer firing on Elijah Eubanks

A man was shot and wounded after police say he fired a revolver at an officer during an early-morning incident in Louisville, Kentucky.

Louisville police said 20-year-old Elijah Eubanks was in stable condition Saturday at the University of Louisville Hospital. Neither officer was injured.

It happened around 1 a.m. Saturday at an apartment complex. Louisville Metro Police body camera footage, released Saturday, shows the officers talking to several people in a car.

As the officers repeatedly ask a passenger to exit, he asks why he’s being harassed.

As an officer opened the car door, police say the man fired a shot at him. Police say both officers fired back. Multiple shots are heard on the video.

Police Maj. Frank Hardison, commander of the department’s special investigations division, said a revolver was recovered from the scene

At a Saturday afternoon news conference, Hardison said the officers were responding to a report of an “occupied, suspicious” vehicle that was called in by a “courtesy officer” — a city police officer who lives in the complex and provides security there.

In the body camera footage, an officer identified as Ian Stuart tells the car’s driver to exit, while the other officer, Eric Goldschmidt, approaches the passenger side where Eubanks is seated.
