Sept. 19 (UPI) -- Georgia prosecutors released dashcam video of a man shooting two police officers before going back to his house to get an AR-15 rifle.
The Peach County District Attorney's Office released the video last week after Ralph Stanley Elrod Jr. pleaded guilty this month to the Nov. 6, 2016, shooting, in which deputies Daryl Smallwood and Patrick Sondron were killed.
The video begins with witness footage of Elrod in front of his house as he holds a gun and threatens to shoot motor bikers, who were driving on the street in front of his home.
The video later cuts to police video of Sondron telling Elrod that he saw the video of him making threats.
"Just so you know, you're under arrest," Sondron said.
"No, I'm not," Elrod replied.
As Sondron reached to grab Elrod's arm, he took a Glock 43 pistol out of his back pocket and shot the officers.
The video then shows Elrod, a 57-year-old electrician, running from his house armed with two AR-15s and a bulletproof vest. He took cover in front of the police vehicle and fired multiple shots at officers who'd arrived.
He eventually stopped firing and surrendered.
Sondron, 41, died that day, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Smallwood, 39, died two days later.
Sondron, a married father of three, was a U.S. Air Force veteran and 13-year member of the Peach County Sheriff's Office. Smallwood, a father of three, had several years of experience in law enforcement and was engaged to be married.
Prosecutors had previously said they would not accept a plea deal for the killings, but families of the fallen deputies said they did not want to sit through a trial.
Under the plea deal, Elrod was given two life sentences.
