Video shows Evan Ebel shooting Texas deputy

Yesterday, in announcing a reprieve for quadruple murderer Nathan Dunlap noted that Lisa Clements remains against the death penalty even after what happened to her husband, the late Colorado prison chief Tom Clements.

What happened to Clements is that Evan Ebel allegedly murdered him, then took off for Texas, where he was killed in a gunfight, but not before shooting a deputy. Now, we've got shocking video of the latter (see it below), as well as more evidence of Ebel's lethality.
