Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters released the body cam video from the Glendale police officer, who shot a man on I-75 on March 29. Investigators later found out the man who the officer shot was a murder suspect out of Baltimore, Maryland. Deters says Pablo Javier Aleman, 46, will be charged with attempted murder in Hamilton County.
Officer Joshua Hilling started talking to Aleman because he was walking along I-75, near Glendale Milford Road. As Hilling started to search Aleman, the body cam shows Aleman quickly confronting the officer. He was armed with a knife.
Officer Hilling shot Aleman in the abdomen but the video shows Aleman continuing to walk around and not follow commands to drop the knife and get on the ground. He yelled at officers to "kill me".
Eventually a Hamilton County deputy fired a Taser, which ended the confrontation. Deters said that investigators believe Aleman's knife was the same used in the murder in Baltimore. He says locking Aleman up here on the attempted murder charge will give Baltimore investigators more time to get the DNA testing done on that knife.
If he's convicted in Hamilton County, Alleman could face up to 11 years in prison on the attempted murder charge. Deters expects his case to go before a grand jury before April 13.
Deters praised Officer Hilling's restraint. "Joshua Hilling deceives a medal for what he did." Hilling should be back to work in the next day or two.
