It looks like something you would see in a Hollywood movie. A body cam video from a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officer shows a high-speed chase and gunfire.
During the chase, the officer opened fire through the windshield of his police cruiser. The officers were investigating a shooting at a car wash earlier that morning in which a man was shot multiple times; he later died.
Police say the officers spotted the suspects about two hours later, and a high-speed chase ensued. During the pursuit, the two suspects fired nearly three dozen rounds out of their vehicle at the officers. The suspects even drove into oncoming traffic during their efforts to get away.
The officers fired a total of 31 rounds during the shootout, and the suspects fired 34, Metro Police said. Assistant Sheriff Kelly praised the officers for their "bravery, professionalism, heroics."
Should police be legally allowed to pursue suspects like this in public?
