According to Live Leak:

“Officer Lou Golson pulled over Christopher Cook at around 2:30 AM Saturday morning (Jan 3 2015) for suspected drunk driving. Officer Golson, an Ex-Marine (sic), walked up to the vehicle and Christopher Cook opened his door and started firing. The officer shot back, but missed. The Suspect then fled as Officer Golson calmly radio’d for help despite his broken femur from a gunshot wound.”

All told, 13 shots were fired, eight of them by Officer Golson after having been shot himself.

Officer Golson is recovering from surgery, and hopes to return to the police force. As for the shooter? He’s already been arrested, thanks to the video evidence proving he shot a police officer.
