CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said a Glendale police officer will not face charges after shooting a knife-wielding man on Interstate 75 last week.

Body camera video shows the March 29 confrontation between Officer Josh Hilling and Pablo Javier Aleman - a wanted suspect in a Baltimore murder investigation.  

“Officer Joshua Hilling is one brave individual and you’re going to see it for yourself,” Deters said before releasing the body cam footage on Tuesday.

Hilling, 31, fired one gunshot after Aleman, 46, drew a knife on the officer on the side of I-75 near Sharon Road. The suspect was shot in the abdomen and continued to walk around the roadway with the knife in his hand. 

The prosecutor praised Hilling for using “remarkable restraint” as Aleman advanced toward officers while yelling "Kill me, kill me."

Police eventually deployed a taser and apprehended Aleman.

It's not clear why Aleman was walking on the side of the interstate, but he initially told the officer he had just left Dayton and was looking for a taxi.

Hilling tried to pat down Aleman before the suspect pulled out the fixed-blade knife. Deters said Hilling was following standard procedure by searching any subjects before they enter a police cruiser.

Aleman underwent surgery at University of Cincinnati Medical Center and remains in the hospital.

He is charged with attempted murder in Hamilton County, which could get him 11 years in prison, Deters said.

Several hours after the shooting, investigators discovered Aleman was wanted in connection with the March 17 stabbing death of his roommate.

“There’s a high probability that that was the murder weapon used against his roommate in Baltimore," Deters said of the knife brandished on I-75. 

A Hamilton County grand jury will hear the case before Aleman can be extradited back to Maryland.
