OGDEN -- Policemen dragging wounded shooting suspect Matthew Stewart into the street is among the stark images on dash-cam video released Tuesday of a fatal Jan. 4 drug raid.
The Standard-Examiner obtained videos from the Riverdale and South Ogden police departments through a public records request.
In addition, the newspaper received seven Ogden police dash-cam videos Monday that record the chaotic scene following a raid by the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force at Stewart's home at 3268 Jackson Ave.
Stewart is accused of killing Officer Jared Francom and wounding five others during a raid by the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force. Stewart was also wounded in the shootout with police.
In the video shot from a Riverdale Police Department patrol car near the intersection of 33rd Street and Jackson Avenue, four officers are seen carrying a wounded individual, who appears to be Francom.
Out of camera view, one of the officers can be heard over a police radio providing to emergency dispatchers the grim vitals of the person being carried.
"Pupils are fixed and dilated," the officer says breathlessly. "No pulse."
Minutes later in the video, another police officer announces over a radio that the shooting suspect is in custody.
Seconds later, a group of officers is seen dragging Stewart -- whose hands are cuffed behind his back -- and then putting him on his side in the street. The officers stand around Stewart, who remains in the street for about a minute, and then carry him off.
The South Ogden dash-cam video shows a vantage point from the south side of Stewart's home. In the video, police officers, bathed in flashing lights from patrol cars, can be seen moving along the side of Stewart's home and leaving the dwelling through a side door.
The relatively calm images sharply contrast with scenes from an Ogden police video released Monday. In that chaotic video, Ogden police are seen scrambling for bulletproof vests and to position a patrol vehicle near Stewart's home.
The videos from Ogden, Riverdale and South Ogden police offer a rare glimpse into the efforts by officers to protect themselves from gunfire while attempting to contain Stewart.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, the shootout began as Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force agents cleared the basement and the main level of Stewart's residence. Stewart opened fire on them from a concealed position at close range with a Beretta 9 mm semiautomatic pistol, striking Francom six times.
Stewart, who was shot multiple times in the incident, has been charged with aggravated murder, seven counts of attempted aggravated murder, and production of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone.
Ogden Police Chief Mike Ashment has declined to comment on the release of the dash-cam videos because the shootout remains under investigation by the Weber County Attorney's Office.
Strike force agents who were wounded include Shawn Grogan and Kasey Burrell, both of the Ogden Police Department; Sgt. Nate Hutchinson, of the Weber County Sheriff's Office; and Jason Vanderwarf, of the Roy Police Department.
In addition, Ogden officer Michael Rounkles was wounded when he arrived on the scene to assist the strike force agents.
