The Austin Police Department released body camera footage showing an exchange of gunfire with a suspect who was allegedly displaying a gun in a “threatening manner” and fired shots at officers on Oct. 23. 

The suspect, 42-year-old Emeka Onyeabo Williams, was struck multiple times as officers returned fire and is in stable condition. He’s facing charges of attempted capital murder, deadly conduct, and recklessly discharging a firearm.
