Description: The Montague County Sheriff's Office has today released the dash cam video of a shooting of one of their police officers during a routine stop.
The newly-released video was taken by 27-year old Deputy James Boyd's dash mounted camera on March 21, showing Deputy Boyd pulling over a black Cadillac with Colorado license plates on Highway 287 in Bowie at Highway 59.
As the deputy bends down to speak with the driver through the passenger side window he is suddenly shot by convicted felon Evan Ebel.
Three shots were fired.
Two bullets strike his bullet proof vest. The third grazes his forehead. The video shows Boyd on the ground as several cars pass by until one vehicle pulls over which was driven by an off duty Johnson County Sheriff's Detective.
That detective assists Boyd and radios for help.
Boyd is now undergoing out-patient rehab at a Dallas area rehabilitation center.
