Police bodycam video was released Thursday after an officer shot a man Wednesday in the Russell neighborhood. A neighbor said she called police because a man appeared to be doing drugs outside a home near Magazine and 26th streets. When three First Division officers arrived, the neighbor told them that the man had gone into a vacant house. According to the police chief, Officer Sarah Stumler, Officer Aaron Seneker and Officer Braden Lammers went into the house and announced their presence multiple times while searching the house. Chief Steve Conrad said as officers were leaving the house, Stumler, 34, noticed Bruce Warrick, 38, hiding behind a mattress that was leaning against a wall in the front living room area.

On her bodycam video, Stumler can be heard shouting, ‘Show me your hands,’ and firing one shot seconds later. Warrick was still behind mattress when he was shot in the abdomen. Warrick was taken to University Hospital, where he had surgery and is still hospitalized. Stumler has been relieved of her police powers, pending the outcome of the investigation. The Public Integrity Unit is investigating. No weapon was found in the house during a search Wednesday.
