MONON – Dashcam video released this week shows the moments before police fatally shot an Indiana man who had abducted his daughter and led officers on a chase in northwestern Indiana.

The Journal and Courier reported the video from the March 28 incident shows 36-year-old Peter Doffin exiting his vehicle with a knife in his hand and approaching officers along U.S. 421 in southern Pulaski County.

Doffin ignores orders to show his hands and get on the ground, according to the police video. Officers fire shots as Doffin disappears to the left side of the camera's frame.

No criminal charges were filed against the officers.

Doffin's daughter wasn't injured.
