The video appears to show Gallmon trying to flee, nearly hitting Cooper with the car.

“Stop! Stop! Do not make me shoot you!,” yells Cooper. He then fires seven shots at Gallmon, hitting him at least one.

The teenager was taken to the hospital, jailed, and then released on bond.  Cooper was not injured and has been suspended with pay.
