Cortes-Ramirez is seen in the video running from his vehicle after the chase. Heading toward the woods, he fires multiple shots at Warner.

Warner, after the exchange of gunfire, rescued the kidnapping victim, who was unharmed.

Hours later, Cortes-Ramirez's body was discovered in the wood. He was holding a pistol.

Officials said they're not exactly clear was caused his death. A medical examiner's report hasn't been released, and the investigation is ongoing.

After the incident, per department policy, Warner was placed on administrative duty.
