Officer fires through own windshield during high speed shootout

Video captures police opening fire on suspects during pursuit

Stunning bodycam video shows a high-speed police chase and shooting in Las Vegas, where an officer fired his gun through his own windshield to try and stop a couple of murder suspects.

Police spotted a black SUV approximately two hours later that matched a description of the one that the two suspects were driving.

Police say both men were armed and under pursuit after allegedly shooting and killing a man at a auto wash. Police said the suspects fired 34 shots at officers along the busy streets near downtown Vegas.

The officer also fired seven shots through his open window, the paper said. He was taken to a local hospital. Officers used "deadly force" to stop 23-year-old Fidel Miranda, who tried to flee on foot.

Shocking footage has surfaced of a Las Vegas cop shooting through his own windshield in a blazing gun battle and high-speed chase.

Officer Paul Solomon fired one round from a shotgun at Miranda. Officers followed the suspects, exchanging gunfire until the suspects crashed into a wall at Hollingworth Elementary School.

One of the suspects was hit and the SUV is seen drifting off the road, toward a building.

One civilian's vehicle was struck by gunfire, Kelly told the paper.

The passenger ran away and tried to hide on school grounds.

Assistant Sheriff Kelly praised the officers for their "bravery, professionalism, heroics". He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Nunez faces multiple counts of murder with a deadly weapon and attempted murder with a deadly weapon.

Miranda died from his injuries, while Nunez survived.

As for the public risk, Kelly said, "We have citizens out on the roadways".

Referrring to Umana, Kelly said he "could have backed off, but he didn't".
