Hudson police released Thursday the name of the police officer who shot and killed an Emirati Case Western Reserve University student after a crash on the Ohio Turnpike over the weekend. 

WARNING: Raw video of the police dash cam above contains explicit language. 

Police say officer Ryan Doran was involved in the shooting that killed 26-year-old Saif Nasser Mubarak Alameri.

On Sunday, Alameri, was driving on the Ohio Turnpike around 2:46 p.m. when he sideswiped another vehicle and flipped his own, according to Hudson police.

He then climbed out of his car and fled the scene.

Nearly one hour later, a Hudson police officer found Alameri in a nearby wooded area off of Hudson-Aurora Road. The city of Hudson said there was a struggle between the officer and the man, and he was killed.

According to dispatch audio released by police, Alameri was shot in the head with a shotgun.

In the dash cam video, Doran can be heard multiple times telling Alameri to get down.

Doran was taken to the hospital and officials say he suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The city also said Doran was placed on paid administrative leave following the shooting.

Alameri was a citizen of the United Arab Emirates and was in Cleveland on a student visa at Case Western Reserve University, according to the Bureau of Criminal Investigation, which is the lead agency on the case. His Facebook page indicates he began law school at the university in June.

Representatives from the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates said they are aware of the incident, but they are still investigating and no further information is ready to be released.
