TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) -- Tulsa police released several videos Thursday of last weekend's shootout with a wanted suspect after which she was hit and killed by a patrol car.

Madison Dickson, 21, was wanted for a series of crimes, including assault with a dangerous weapon, unauthorized use of a vehicle and discharging a firearm in a public place. Police also believe she shot two people during separate incidents in mid-March.

On March 18, officers spotted Dickson riding in a vehicle in south Tulsa. Police say she exchanged gunfire with several officers as they drove near 91st and Harvard.

Police say Dickson jumped out of the vehicle, running from officers but still firing her gun. She was then hit by a patrol car driven by Officer Jonathan Grafton, a six-year veteran of the department. Police say Grafton hit Dickson to stop the threat against officers and other citizens in the neighborhood.

After Dickson was hit by the cruiser, police used a stun gun to ensure she was no longer a threat. Dickson died of head trauma at the hospital.

No one was hit by the gunfire.

Police identified the two officers who exchanged fire with Dickson as Detective Ronnie Leatherman, with TPD for 17 years, and Officer Kayla Johnson, a four-year veteran of the department.
