    ALPHARETTA, Ga. —

    Police released dashcam video Thursday showing a man who shot an Alpharetta police officer seven times during a traffic stop.

    Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik covered the shooting when the story broke in April 2013.

    Police say that night, Curtis Hicks shot Officer David Freeman seven times, severely injuring him.

    Hicks then led officers from several departments on a high-speed chase through Roswell and into Sandy Springs. He crashed his car on Georgia 400.

    Police say Hicks emerged from his truck and began shooting again. The video shows officers returning fire, and Hicks was fatally shot.

    Freeman made a full recovery and is back on road patrol with Alpharetta police.

    In a video produced by North Point Community Church, Freeman’s wife recounted her husband’s phone call that night.

    “He said, ‘Hey beautiful. I just need you to know I’ve been shot. I think I’m OK. I need you to get my parents over to the house and get to the hospital as soon as you can,’” she said.

    Alpharetta Police Department spokesman George Gordon said detectives searched Hicks’ apartment and found guns and ammunition.

    “We don’t know if he was bent on more carnage in the future," said Gordon.

    Gordon says Hicks’ family told police he was mentally ill and suspected he might have been on his way to kill one of them when Freeman pulled him over.
