CHEROKEE COUNTY, N.C. (WLOS) — Surveillance footage from inside the home of a Murphy, North Carolina, man provides an inside look at a December raid that left the homeowner shot multiple times.

On December 13, 2022, Jason Harley Kloepfer, 41, was reportedly shot several times by members of the Cherokee Indian Police SWAT Team. The incident was first reported by the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office in a press release posted to social media later that day. In the post, authorities said on Monday, Dec. 12, a 911 call had alerted authorities to a disturbance with several gunshots at a residence on Upper Bear Paw Road.

According to the press release, “Recognizing there was an armed suspect present and the potential for a hostage situation, Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office obtained a search warrant and requested assistance from the Cherokee Indian Police Department SWAT Team.”

The surveillance footage released by Kloepfer appears to show a conflicting account of the event.

The video shows footage, from inside the camper, of authorities placing a robotic camera inside the camper. The footage then shows Kloepfer and his wife awake to find the camera, pick it up and go to open the door.

Seconds later, officers fired several rounds at Kloepfer, who fell to the ground.

The video shows Kloepfer’s wife obeying orders to come out of the camper before SWAT Team members rush inside with guns drawn while Kloepfer is on the ground with his hands up.

In the surveillance footage, Kloepfer makes the claim that he is a “disabled man who was unarmed and complying with the commands of law enforcement officers when he was shot.”

Kloepfer was taken to the hospital to be treated for his wounds before being charged with communicating threats and resisting, obstruction and delay.



In a statement posted to his Facebook page on Friday, Jan. 20, 2023, Kloepfer say

Kloepfer is scheduled to be in court on March 9 where will likely be responding to the 911 call that triggered the police response.
