Man Shot by Erlanger Police After Pulling a Gun

A northern Kentucky man is going to prison for 15 years after pointing a gun at officers in Erlanger, and body camera video from the arrest has been released.

Officers opened fire on Dexter Helton after serving a drug warrant. This happened outside the Peecox Bar off Donaldson Highway in April 2018.

Police say Helton ran out the back of the bar when they went in. They say Helton then pulled out a gun and pointed it at them, which is why they say they fired several shots, hitting him.

Helton survived and pleaded guilty on Monday to wanton endangerment and fleeing police.
