New details released after ex-NFL player shot by police during domestic dispute



DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Channel 9 on Tuesday got the final report into the case of an ex-NFL player who was shot by Daytona Beach officers as he held a 12-inch butcher knife to his girlfriend's throat last year.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement report said those officers were justified in shooting Jermaine Green, a former player on the New York Giants.

Police said they heard screams from inside the Magnolia Avenue home and kicked their way in after getting the disturbance call in late September.

Once inside, officers said they found Green, 32, holding his girlfriend, Katrina Johnson, at knifepoint.

Police said Green refused to put the knife down and raised it as if he was going to stab Johnson. Officers then opened fire, shooting Green and striking Johnson in the process.

The 20-page report also has new details about what happened before and during the attack, which was partially caught on camera by police body cameras.

According to the report, in 911 calls made from the home, a caller said Green was "going crazy" and also had a chainsaw.

When police got to the scene, they said Green was holding the butcher knife to his girlfriend's neck and screaming, "I'll kill her," over and over again. 

During the confrontation with police, officers fired nine rounds at Green, striking him and Johnson.

Green underwent surgery and continues to recover. Johnson's injuries were non-life-threatening.

After seeing the video, a judge decided Green should stay in jail, denying him bond. His trial is set for January.
