Providence police release traffic, body cam video from shooting

Providence police identified a man shot and killed by officers on an Interstate 95 ramp following a pursuit as 32-year-old Joseph Santos.
A woman in the pickup truck who was injured in the shooting was identified as 37-year-old Christine Demers. She was recovering at Rhode Island Hospital.
Col. Hugh Clements defended his officers' use of lethal force, saying that Santos presented a clear danger to public safety. Clements said the windows of the truck were blacked out and they did not know who was inside.
Department of Transportation that showed officers pursuing the truck on Route 10 into Providence until it eventually was boxed in by traffic on a ramp to Interstate 95 north.
The video shows the truck ramming three cars around it and spinning its wheels to create a plume of smoke.
