WATCH | Dashcam video shows police chase and arrest of suspect after he stole and crashed off-duty Cleveland police officer, Shane Bartek's vehicle

Anthony Butler Jr. led police on a chase through several cities that ended with him crashing Bartek's car into a fence in an apartment complex in Euclid.

EUCLID, Ohio — Richmond Heights Police Department has released dashcam video that shows the chase and arrest of a man connected in the carjacking and murder of Shane Bartek.

Anthony Butler Jr. led police on a chase through several cities that ended with him crashing Bartek's car into a fence in an apartment complex in Euclid.

In the video, you can see police officers with their guns drawn approaching the vehicle yelling, "show me your hands! Don't move! You move and you will be shot."

Butler Jr. has been charged with fleeing, receiving stolen property and traffic-related charges after allegedly crashing Bartek’s vehicle in a “multi-jurisdictional police pursuit.”

On Monday morning, 18-year-old Tamara McLoyd, the woman charged with aggravated murder in the New Year’s Eve shooting death of Cleveland police officer Shane Bartek, made her first court appearance in the case.

During the brief hearing in Cleveland Municipal Court, a judge set McLoyd's bond at $5 million for the charge of aggravated murder.

McLoyd is due back in court for a preliminary hearing next week on Tuesday, Jan. 11 at 8:30 a.m.

Bartek, 25, was off-duty at the time of the incident, which police say happened in the parking lot of an apartment complex around 6 p.m. on Dec. 31 in the 4300 block of Rocky River Drive.

“Detectives reviewed video surveillance footage, which showed Bartek being ambushed and robbed by an armed subject,” according to the complaint filed against McLoyd.

Bartek was later pronounced dead at Fairview Hospital. He was a two-year veteran with the Cleveland Division of Police.
