The video from January 1998 is a dash cam recording of what started as a routine traffic stop but resulted in death of a deputy officer. Deputy Kyle Dinkheller pulled over a truck on a range road 6 miles north of Dublin, Georgia. The man who got out of truck acted weird so Deputy Kyle Dinkheller called in for back up. Before the backup could arrive, the man from the truck pulled out a 30 caliber rifle and went straight towards the officer firing live shots at him. Deputy Kyle Dinkheller returned fire and wounded the culprit by a shot in the abdomen, but sustained severe, life threatening shots that later claimed his life.
Suspect was apprehended the following morning and was sentenced to death in a trial a year later. He’s on death row waiting to be executed. Deputy Kyle Dinkheller was 22 year old when killed and was married to an expectant woman who gave birth to a boy in Septemb
