Amazing body-worn camera footage released by the Tacoma Police Department shows the eerie calm and laser focus of an officer as he arrived on the scene to an active gunfight and cooly dispatched an attacking assailant with a single rifle shot at 183 yards.

“He has a long gun, get units here,” Figueras radioed. “I have no angle, I have no angle.”
