By PoliceOne Staff COLUMBIA, SC – Dashcam footage of a gunfire exchange between a trooper and a suspect last month has been released. According to Fox 57, Trooper Paul Wise attempted to stop 27-year-old Willie Bernard Wright on June 2 for a safety belt violation. Wright fled and a pursuit ensued. When the pursuit stopped at a dead end, Wright got out of his vehicle and opened fire at Wise, who returned fire as Wright attempted to flee the scene. Wright fired at least 12 shots. Both the trooper and suspect were hit, treated at a hospital and have since been released, ABC Columbia reported. Wright could face life in prison for the incident.
