Fatal gun fight: Shocking body cam footage shows man firing point-blank at female deputy, her reaction is heroic


GRAPHIC: The Napa Country Sheriff’s Office has released dramatic body camera footage showing the moment a female deputy shoots and kills her attempted murderer.

Javier Hernandez Morales, 43, fired on Deputy Riley Jarecki at point-blank range as she asked him to roll down the window. After taking cover, Jarecki returned fire, fatally shooting Morales, who according to police, already had a criminal history.

Undersheriff Jon Crawford said the department was proud of the composure and poise Jarecki showed while fighting for her life.

This is what our remarkable law enforcement personnel potentially face every day. Hats off to Deputy Jarecki and those who risk their lives to keep ours safe each and every day.
