BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

Video released exclusively to Region 8 News shows the tense moments after a sheriff's deputy exchanged gunfire with 3 suspects in an armed robbery and pursuit that started in Kennett, Missouri on July 1, 2015.

The Mississippi County Sheriff’s Office released the video from a body camera on an unnamed sheriff’s deputy. In the video, the sheriff’s deputy claimed he was shot at several times by 1 of 3 suspects after the robbery of Curt’s Grocery in Kennett.

The video begins during the police chase in Blytheville after the owner of the grocery store was shot and officers were involved in a gun fight. Click here to read about the initial incident.

All 3 suspects, Antonio Brown, Julius Jones and Dontario Jones face charges in connection to the robbery or pursuit.

The video shows the sheriff’s deputy chasing down the suspects and asking if spike strips have been thrown to stop the suspect’s vehicle. The deputy also directs other officers to several locations.

In the video, you can see bullet holes in the police cruiser from where the deputy shot at the suspects from inside the cab.

When the suspects ditched the car, the deputy takes off on foot after the suspects, capturing Antonio Brown minutes later.

After Brown’s capture, the deputy begins to talk to other deputies on the scene. He told another officer that the suspects shot at him several times and he “returned fire” from inside the police cruiser.

The deputy also discovered that he hit the suspects vehicle when he returned fire.

Julius Jones was arrested an hour later by Osceola police. Dontario Jones turned himself in a few weeks after the incident.

Arkansas State Police told Region 8 News that the case is under investigation and is “open and active.”
