Las Vegas policeman shoots through windscreen during auto chase

Video captures police opening fire on suspects during pursuit

Witnesses told police the suspects took off in an early 2000s model Ford Expedition, which officers say is the vehicle shown in the body camera video.

The suspects are shooting at the pursuing officers the entire time and, at the end of the video (around 3:15 in), the officer finally pulls out his gun to return fire. Police say the suspects fired 34 times at officers, before this happened.

According to local media, Miranda and Nunez were suspected in the shooting of a 25-year-old who died at the hospital after sustaining multiple gunshot wounds to the chest.

According to Metro officials, this is the 10th officer involved shooting, and the 5th fatal officer involved shooting for the Las Vegas area in 2018. Hours later, Umana spotted an SUV matching the description of the suspects, and gave chase.

Police traded gunfire with the two suspects during a chase that ended with the SUV crashing into a wall at an elementary school, Yatomi said.

One of the suspects was hit and the SUV is seen drifting off the road, toward a building. "In my opinion they showed bravery and heroics we come to expect from our officers".

A civilian's auto is struck by flying gunfire. "Nunez exited the vehicle as it was still moving near Hollingsworth Elementary School, 1776 E. Ogden Ave., and ran up steps outside of the school and attempted to enter, but the door was locked", Kelly said.

Miranda was handcuffed while medical was called but was soon pronounced dead at the scene, the paper said, adding that Officers Umana and Solomon were not injured. Nunez is now facing murder and assault charges, discharging a firearm from a vehicle, carrying a concealed weapon and other charges.

Nunez is accused of stealing the SUV on May 20 in North Las Vegas.
