Dallas police on Saturday charged a 29-year-old man after a shooting at Dallas Love Field Airport that was captured in a stunning cell phone video.
Shawn Diamond, 29, was charged with assault family violence and aggravated assault on a public servant, reports BuzzFeed.
The incident occurred Friday afternoon while he was being dropped off at the airport by his ex-girlfriend, “with whom he became angry,” reports the news outlet:
The officer who responded to reports of the dispute saw a man using a rock to break the windows of a car, after hitting a car window and the windshield with a traffic cone, police said.
When the officer asked him to drop the rock, Diamond allegedly approached the officer, and the officer fired at least eight times. Officials said it was not clear how many times Diamond was struck.
In the video, a man who appears to look like Diamond begins to slam a traffic cone into the parked car. He then grabs nearby rocks and hurls them at the car.
Diamond was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for injuries, the report says.
