Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- Officials have released dashboard videos of a police pursuit in which an officer was killed by friendly fire while trying to stop a suspect who also was shot to death.

Mayor Danny Jones and Kanawha County Sheriff Mike Rutherford attended a news conference Friday where the videos were shown.

Rutherford's department investigated the incident.

The videos from several police cruisers show a long pursuit that started near the State Capitol and ended nearly 20 miles away near Quick.

The videos show the pickup truck driven by Brian Good of Miliken turning around and attempting to ram police cruisers.

Officials say Good and patrolman Jerry Jones were fatally shot.

The mayor has said the 27-year-old patrolman was struck by friendly fire.

    I would think that you would proof read submitted coments before you allow them to post. The name calling and being glad someone is dead is a bit much don't you think?

    Good, Idiots taking out idiots! Bet they wish they would have just jumped out and arrested this guy now huh? Just a reminder of how poorly trained these guys are, and dont they know how and when to use deadly force? Im sorry but police now have it in their head that they are the law. I have been harrassed by so many of these young punks who are ate plum up with the power of arrest. Look at them and next thing you know your on the side of the road being told when to breathe, how your nothing and they are everything and of course if you dont let them get their rocks off, "YOUR GOING TO JAIL" My wife worked Hardees breakfast, over and over if I would pass one same thing pulled over and being asked "what are you doing out this time of morning?? What? is it any of your business? Five more show up....here we go! All got controll issues in their lives mixed with low self worth and lack of respect, gonna feel "BIG" and in charge. Well one less person gets harrassed tonight, Thanks Guys, UIDIOTS
