Jurors in the Dominique Heaggen-Brown trial got a look at the shooting of Sylville Smith through the body camera of the officer himself.

The video begins shortly after Heaggen-Brown jumps out of the car.

Experts testified about what was happening in the video frame by frame. Wisconsin Department of Justice Special Agent Jay Novak said there was 1.69 seconds between the two shots fired by Heaggen-Brown. One shot entered Smith’s  bicep and then lodged in a nearby window frame. The other entered his chest.

Jurors took the better part of an hour looking at still photographs made from the video. They also were given a transcript of the video where Heaggen-Brown says, “It all happened so fast.”

There was a delay in the afternoon session when a juror had to be excused. Judge Jeffrey Conen said the woman realized over time that she was familiar with someone in the case.

Police training experts closed out the day. The state will continue with expert witnesses tomorrow.

They could wrap up their case as soon as the weekend. Heaggen-Brown is charged with First Degree Reckless Homicide.
