An Illinois man accused of beating his wife was fatally shot by cops as he hit a deputy in the head with a metal pipe, harrowing bodycam video shows.
The footage, released Monday by the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office, shows multiple deputies ordering Faustin Guetigo, 27, to drop the metal pipe as he walked up a set of stairs at the couple’s Rockford home on April 10.
Guetigo — whose wife had accused him of punching her at least twice in the head and face — ignored the commands and kept coming at a deputy atop the stairs, hitting him with the pipe and sending him to the ground, the clip shows. Cops said later the deputy, identified by KREX as Sgt. Joe Broullard, was knocked unconscious.
Winnebago County Sheriff Gary Caruana said in a video statement that deputies started rescue efforts on Faustin following the police-involved shooting, but he later died from his injuries.
Broullard was treated and released at a hospital and has been referred to a specialist for follow-up care, Caruana said.
