Video: Amazon Security Guard Tries To Kill His Supervisor Before Shooting A Police Officer & Killed In A Shootout

An Amazon security guard named Ali Hamsa Yusuf was captured by a CCTV camera attempting to shoot to kill his supervisor at his back at close range. “‘He was my trainee…He shot at me twice, but he missed. He almost executed me‘, he said.

The 22-year-old was shortly shot and killed by the police after he opened fire on an officer who was saved by his bulletproof vest – the bodycam footage released by the police. The officer injured in the shooting was taken to Grant Medical Center for treatment.

Watch the video below:

The shooting occurred around 4;40 pm on Sunday at the warehouse in West Jefferson, Ohio. There is no known reason as to why the employee wanted to shoot and kill his supervisor. The police also said he had no criminal history.

After failing to kill his supervisor, the employee left the building, which had about 100 workers at that time. He was spotted later in a vehicle in Columbus by Madison County authorities. Yusuf then left the vehicle and began firing at a Columbus officer after he was ordered to stop. The police officer was hit by a bullet but was not seriously injured due to his bulletproof vest.

According to records, Yusuf was a contracted security guard at the Amazon fulfillment center, and had been training for around two weeks.
