Dash camera video released Thursday shows part of the pursuit of a wanted man before a South Bloomfield police officer collided with a tractor-trailer.
Felix Sherard, 30, of Columbus, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Monday after leading police, deputies, and troopers on a chase.

The incident began at about 10 a.m. on Monday in Ross County, when a 911 call indicated Sherad had forced entry into a home and threatened a woman and another man with a gun.

Sherard led law enforcement on a chase that ended in Madison County.

Police used spike strips to disable the silver Sienna minivan. Madison County deputies said he got out of the car with a handgun and shot himself.

South Bloomfield Police Department identified the minivan near Mt. Sterling earlier.

Dash camera video shows the cruiser approaching the minivan from behind at a stoplight before Sherard speeds off. The cruiser reached speeds over 120 mph at one point.

The officer approaches the intersection of London and Main Streets in downtown Mt. Sterling just as a tractor-trailer enters. The video ends as the cruiser strikes the truck.

Sherard was already under indictment in Franklin County for multiple counts of robbery in Grove City.

Police said he pointed a gun at two men just before 1 a.m. on Aug. 26, 2023, and demanded their property.

Sherad's roommate was later charged in connection with a different robbery that investigators said Sherard was a witness to, but a search warrant yielded video that police said showed Sherard matching the victims' description on the night of the robbery holding a similar gun.

The victims then picked Sherard out of a lineup.

A grand jury in April 2024 indicted him on two counts of aggravated robbery, two counts of robbery, and one count of weapons under disability. A warrant was active for his arrest.
