ALPHARETTA, GA (CBS46) -

Dash cam video released by the Alpharetta Police Department shows an officer shot seven times in April of 2013.

"As I was approaching the car, all of the sudden he (shooter) jumped out and started shooting. I was able to return fire and we had a little exchange. I radioed in to dispatch what happened, that I'd been hit and when the ambulance got there I had my cell phone with me so I called Christie(wife)," said Officer David Freeman, the patrolman shot.

Police shot and killed the shooter, Curtis Hicks, who they said was a loner and lived with a mental illness. Officers are not sure what led to the shooting, but said they found 18 loaded magazines in Hicks' apartment used for an AR-15.

Investigators are not sure why Hicks was in the area the day he shot the officer, but said a relative of Hicks' said he may have been on his way to her home. She believes Hicks was going to murder her.

Officer Freeman underwent a year of rehabilitation and several surgeries. He has now returned to work.
