The dash cam video then shows the police auto veer toward Dickson who appeared to be yelling before she's struck by the vehicle. According to NewsOn6, she stole a deputy's patrol auto while wearing handcuffs two years ago.

At first glance, it's unclear what Dickson is holding in her right hand until the video is slowed down and a red circle shows the gun. Officers are heard informing dispatchers that multiple shots had been fired.

Dickson then points her gun toward the police vehicle as the auto moves toward her.

The woman later told police she had been too frightened to move.

Two years ago she stole an Osage County deputy's patrol auto while still wearing handcuffs. Only then does the officer, Jonathan Grafton, bring the vehicle to a halt.

Grafton, a Tulsa police officer for six years, was put on paid leave during the investigation.

Officer Kayla Johnson and Detective Ronnie Leatherman are the officers who fired their weapons at her.

Centcom confirms airstrike against al Qaeda in Syria
Rescue workers struggled to pull survivors from rubble, and dozens of residents were still unaccounted for, the Observatory said. More than 320,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict with anti-government protests six years ago.

Officers spotted Dickson on Saturday at an apartment complex.

Authorities said they had desperately tried to stop Dickson because of the threat she was posing. She later got out of the truck and started firing at police.

Police said no one was struck by any bullets and Dickson died when she hit her head on the ground.

When police tracked down Dickson last Saturday, the wanted woman fled in a truck before eventually exchanging gunfire with cops, according to the Tulsa World. She was a suspect in a series of crimes, including two shootings earlier this month.

Police said she shot a Good Samaritan who had stopped to help after she was involved in a wreck on Thursday, March 16, 2017, just two days before the confrontation that killed her.

Dickson and an unidentified man approached a woman outside the store and demanded that she get out of her auto, police said, and Dickson shot the woman in the arm when she didn't move.
