Video Shows Illinois Trooper’s Shooting of Homicide Suspect

PANA, Ill. (AP) — Illinois State Police have released video of a state trooper’s fatal shooting of a man suspected in the slayings of his estranged partner and her sister.

Thirty-two-year-old Adam Cobb died April 3, a day after being shot following a police pursuit in southwestern Illinois. Police video released Thursday shows police pursuing a pickup truck before it stops on U.S. 51 in Christian County. Cobb then exits the truck, aims a firearm at officers before a trooper repeatedly fires at Cobb as he makes multiple attempts to shoot at officers.

Cobb was wanted in the killings of 30-year-old Jamie Joiner, who had apparently ended a relationship with him, and 34-year-old Jessica Joiner.
