Madison Dickson was identified as the possible victim of police brutality after she was killed earlier this week at the hands of Tulsa police officers. An investigation is ongoing.
New footage has been released showing the last moments of Madison Dickson alive. The 21-year-old lost her life last Saturday, March 18, after what it looks like a police-suspect chase that went horribly wrong.
Born Madison Sueann Dickson was on the lookout by authorities after she was the suspect in a string of crimes.
According to KTUL, Dickson was believed to be the woman behind two shootings in Oklahoma. In one incident she allegedly shot a man in the head, she was also accused of discharging a firearm during a March 11 theft at a Best Buy store. Additionally, Dickson reportedly shot a woman in the arm outside a Walgreens.
To be alive, charges against her would include: two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, shooting with intent to kill, unauthorized use of a vehicle, attempted larceny and discharging a firearm in a public place.
Sources close to Madison Dickson claim her struggled with substance abuse led her to commit the crimes. According to reports she was part of a drug-treatment program –which she left earlier this year.
Last weekend, she was spotted riding in a vehicle in South Tulsa. Shortly after, Dickson and cops began to exchange gunfire. At some point she jumped out of her vehicle and started running and aiming her firearm at pursuing officers.
She can be heard firing off several rounds and pointing her gun at officers moments before she was fatally struck.
In the final seconds of footage, the officer in the vehicle seems to drive it over the sidewalk running her over.
The officer identified as Jonathan Grafton was placed on paid administrative leave while the investigation into his use of deadly force is ongoing.
