Below is a recap of day 2 of the trial.
The trial for a fired Dallas police officer accused of shooting at a woman 12 times during an investigation continued Wednesday.
Christopher Hess, 42, is charged with aggravated assault by a public servant after he shot and killed 21-year old Genevive Dawes on Jan. 18, 2017 while responding to a call about a stolen car.
The latest news from around North Texas.
A Dallas County jury will now decide if deadly force was justified in this case. Hess is pleading not guilty and, if convicted, faces up to 99 years or life in prison.
On Wednesday, Hess' body camera video was shown in court for the first time. He can be heard yelling "hands up," before he gets in his squad car to move it to block Dawes from backing up. Then, seconds later, Dawes backs into his squad car and Hess opens fire.
Prosecutors called the man whose 911 call brought police to the apartment complex to testify. Joe Samples testified he did not remember allegedly telling prosecutors he did not think Dawes was trying to hit officers.
"I asked you did it appear from what you saw that he was trying to hit officers and your answer to that question was, 'No.' Do you recall that conversation Mr. Samples?" Prosecutor George Lewis asked.
"No sir, I don't," Samples said.
Lead prosecutor George Lewis said during the opening day of the trial on Tuesday that six Dallas police officers responded to the scene. Hess and another officer, Sr. Cpl. Jason Kimpel, were the last to arrive.
Lewis said the body camera footage revealed that one of the officers checked the vehicle and found Dawes and her common law husband, Virgilio Rosales, sleeping inside. Dawes was in the driver's seat while Rosales sat in the passenger seat.
Dallas police said during that encounter the occupants of the car ignored responding police officers' commands to show their hands.
The body camera footage played out in the courtroom shows Dawes backs into one of the squad cars, then pulls forward and hitting a fence next to the scene. The body camera footage showed the vehicle slowly backing out of the parking spot again and at that moment, the video showed Hess yelling commands at the vehicle before he fires his service weapon.
Investigators said 13 rounds total were fired. Of those shots, 12 came from Hess' weapon and one shot -- which struck the vehicle -- came from Kimpel's weapon.
A medical expert from the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences said Wednesday that Dawes was hit five times. Her passenger was not injured.
A few months after the incident, Hess was indicted in the shooting death and surrendered at the Dallas County Jail. He was released after posting a $250,000 bond. Hess was eventually terminated from the department months later after the chief said he violated the department's policies on felony traffic stops and use of deadly force.
According to The Dallas Morning News, Kimpel was put on restricted duty at the time but is now an active member of the department. According to police, he is not facing criminal charges for the shooting.
