JONESBORO, Ark. -- A dashcam video from a police SUV shows teenager Joseph Kane opening fire with an AK-47 on two West Memphis police officers before taking off in a van with his father.

Prosecutors released the video Wednesday as part of a preliminary report clearing police of any wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of Jerry Kane and his son, 16-year-old Joseph.

The video, taken from Officer Bill Evans' police SUV dashboard, begins with what appears to be a standard traffic stop. The video had no audio but shows Jerry Kane stepping outside his minivan at Evans' request, then pointing emphatically at his Ohio license plate.

Moments later, Joseph comes out of the passenger side of the van, firing an AK-47. He fires for less than a minute, then gets back in the van with his father.

Evans and Sgt. Brandon Paudert were killed in the traffic stop. The Kanes were later shot dead by police in a Walmart parking lot.

Warning: The videos linked are graphic and should be viewed with that knowledge.

Note: The video is long and slow.
