Chilling Dashcam Footage Captures Fatal Freeway Shooting

A dashcam in a state trooper’s car has captured the dramatic moment a father taking his children on a road trip pulled out a gun and shot an officer who then returned fire. John Van Allen, 34, was driving with three of his children when he was pulled over on Interstate 84 east of Portland, Oregon by Trooper Matt Zistel, 26, for speeding. Even though Van Allen was hit in the chest in the exchange of fire, he does not appear to be injured as he returns to his car. Responding officers found Zistel suffering a non-life-threatening gunshot wound and came across Allen’s car on the shoulder of the freeway half a mile away. He was dead inside, with a gunshot wound to the chest. Three of his five children – a 10-year-old girl and two boys, aged 13 and 15 – were also at the scene but they were not hurt. The Sherman County district attorney found that Zistel was justified in using deadly force when he shot Allen.
