On April 4, the EPD says an officer tried to pull Fingers over for driving without headlights on. Fingers hit the gas, beginning a high speed chase across Evansville's east side.
That officer lost sight of Fingers, but moments later another officer, Ryan Winters caught up to him.
Sergeant Jason Cullum says winters identified himself and drew his gun, but fingers did not cooperate and started to walk away then tripped on the curb falling with his hands under his body.
Cullum says it was that moment that the officer fired the shot.
Officer Winters will be back on duty this week, without the incident captured on his body camera
Winters has been on the force for almost seven years and the department says he is a decorated veteran.
