FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WRAL) - Investigators are working to piece together exactly what led Cumberland County Sheriff’s Lt. Jeffrey Hash to shoot Jason Walker over the weekend.

Using audio of the 911 calls, listening to witness statements and digging into pre-crash data stored in the “black box” of Hash’s vehicle, investigators are working to build a picture of what happened.

A vehicle’s “black box” captures information about what a driver is doing behind the wheel before impact.

Investigators are using this technology to help reconstruct the moments Hash says Walker jumped onto his hood. It captures about 5 seconds of pre-crash data, including speed, brake and seatbelt status.
