Insane Video Shows Las Vegas Cop Shoot at Murder Suspects Through Windshield in High-Speed Chase
Shocking footage has surfaced of a Las Vegas cop shooting through his own windshield in a blazing gun battle and high-speed chase. It came to an end with the suspects' SUV smashing into an elementary school.
Police had been on the lookout for the stolen black SUV after a man was shot at a carwash at about 7.30am local time on July 11. He later died in hospital.
In the video, released by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police on Monday, one officer can be heard yelling “Shots fired! Shots fired!” into his radio as they start to pursue the suspects’ car. In an intense, four minute chase the SUV can be seen careering into oncoming traffic.
Police said the suspects fired 34 shots at officers before the SUV crashed into an elementary school. Officers used “deadly force” to stop 23-year-old Fidel Miranda, who tried to flee on foot. 30-year-old Rene Nunez was found hiding and wounded on the school grounds and was arrested. Police claim that Miranda had two weapons with him. Nunez was found with a gun, reported stolen in northern Las Vegas on May 20.
