(WKYC)  New dashcam video has been released from a St. Patrick's Day police shootout in Solon, Ohio that ended with a suspect dead.

The two police officers involved have been cleared of any wrongdoing during the traffic stop that took a deadly turn.

Police trainers use recent incidents and every scenario they can think of to prepare officers.

Solon police said Monday night that the training they have developed as recently as four years ago may have saved one officer's life.

On the night of St. Patrick's Day, Solon Police Officer Steven Davis pulled over Kevin Bailey for a traffic violation.

Officer Davis reported smelling marijuana in the car and called for backup. As both officers approached the car, Bailey rolls up his window and starts his car.

A short chase ended when Bailey blew out a dire. Davis's cruiser blocked Bailey's door, but then Bailey opens fire on police.

Davis, a member of the SWAT team, returned fire through the windshield, killing Bailey with shots to his head and shoulder.
