VIDEO: Glendale police officers open fire on high-speed driver

GLENDALE, AZ - New video just released from a Glendale police shooting shows two officers opening fire on an SUV as the driver speeds right towards them.

The officers then move off the road seconds before the vehicle takes a sharp turn.

The dashboard camera video of the incident, which occurred in March of 2012 near 67th Avenue and Northern, has been under review by investigators until this week.

Twelve shots were fired within three seconds. None of the bullets hit the driver, according to Glendale police.

Police said they initially tried to pull the driver over because it looked like he had been in an accident because his bumper was dragging behind him.

The officers involved were justified in the shooting, police told ABC15.

Meanwhile, the driver, who was 17-years-old at the time, is being charged as an adult with five counts of aggravated assault on an officer, two counts of criminal damage and one count of possession of marijuana.
