The Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation has released body camera video that shows the moment a police officer shot a Burlington, Iowa, woman.
On January 6, 2015, Officer Jesse Hill responded to a domestic call in the 100 block of South Garfield Avenue. Hill fired his weapon twice, and one round struck Autumn Steele mid-torso, according to the Iowa Department of Public Safety. Steele died while being treated.
Neighbors told News 8 that Hill was attempting to shoot a dog, but slipped.
The 12-second body camera video, released to The Burlington Hawk Eye, shows 34-year-old Steele fighting with her husband. Burlington police officer Jesse Hill tells the couple to stop.
Steele yells, “He’s got my kid!”
Hill responds, “Get your dog!” and growls can be heard in the background.
Two shots are then heard as the camera flips up towards the sky.
In February, Des Moines County Attorney Amy Beavers said no charges would be filed against Hill.
