VIDEO: Officer Takes Out Two Gunmen By Shooting Through Window During Pursuit

A Las Vegas Metro police officer took down two gunmen in a rolling gunfight which was captured on video.

Las Vegas, NV - Bodycam video has been released showing a rolling gunfight between a Las Vegas Metro police officer and two gunmen.

The incident happened eat around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday after officers received a report of a man who had been repeatedly shot in the chest, according to Las Vegas Review Journal.

The shooting victim did not survive his injuries.

Officers were given the description of the gunman's vehicle, and they found a vehicle matching the description two hours later at 29th Street and Constantine Avenue.

Officers attempted to stop the vehicle and it sped off.

During the pursuit, at least one of the vehicle occupants fired on officers.

An officer was captured on his bodycam video returning fire through his windshield, then out of his driver's side window, which sent the driver crashing into the wall of the Hollingsworth Elementary School.

The officer exited his vehicle and continued throwing lead at the men.

22-year-old Fidel Miranda was destroyed in the gunfight. 30-year-old Rene Nunez was struck by the gunfire but fled before being arrested. Nunez is being treated for his gunshot wounds at University Medical Center.

Two police officers shot at the suspects during the pursuit, which is still under investigation.

Assistant Sheriff Tim Kelly said that the suspect had fired 34 rounds at officers during the rolling gun battle.

Assistant Sheriff Kelly added that the video shows the officers' bravery.

"The officer could have backed off, but he didn't," he said.

You can see the video of the shooting below. The officer returns fire at around the 3:15 mark. WARNING - May be disturbing to some viewers:

Watch someone complain about excessive force because he didn't ask for license and registration first.

@theLE27 He did, but he forgot to say 'Please'. Shaun King is outraged.

And usually I just fast-forward to where the vid gets good but this whole thing was amazing. He's driving at high rates of speed, getting shot at, weaving in and out of traffic with his seat almost laying back flat and still has his radio, calmly giving updates and navigational cues. Then you can tell he wants to shoot out of the window but not with his left hand so he takes the risk that the windshield might shatter or the bullet might ricochet and just goes for it successfully. Simply outstanding. This vid should be required in training!

Great job and thanks for your bravery. I would love to find out if the deceased and the damaged one were illegal or their status. Being it is Vegas, I would not be surprised but of course were being racist just for asking, right? Yeah, right!

Police need a way to communicate without holding a mic. In this day and age someone needs to figure this out. It's stupid to hold a mic, engage in a speeding pursuit and then try to protect themselves. It was horrifying watching this and am so thankful the officers were alright.

@Just-My-Thoughts: with services like onstar I feel the same way. There are people far smarter than me who can figure this out.

WOW! Good job. I also agree with Just-My-Thoughts - need a way to communicate without holding a mic. I keep thinking that as I watched the video.

Imagine the stress that this officer is going through during this pursuit. We need to develop standard, voice activated tecnology for all emergency vehicles. You simply cannot have one hand on the wheel and one hand on a radio mike in a situation like this.

I have to go against the grain on this one. Rapid fire through a windshield while driving at substantial speeds is irresponsible. Where did all those rounds wind up? There's no way all those rounds were contained within the perps vehicle...

That's why they go through so much training. He did not fire randomly. He did not fire when first fired upon. He did it when it was straight on and then when no one else was in the line of fire.

The overwhelming majority of bullets missed. Kids could have been killed by the reckless shooting. Just because no children were killed doesn't convert these bad tactics into good tactics. It is important to keep police officers safe, but it is even more important to keep innocent civilians safe!

The Sheriffs department in my area actually practice shooting through the windshield to learn how the shots deflect and correct their aim.

That Officer is a badass IMO. Great job.

This Officer is a hero !!! The number of people that could have been killed by this maniac. This Officer did everything to stop this POS. Good work and God bless!

Wow, what an intense firefight! He did what needed to be done! From the press conference, It sounds like the department is going to back him up. He was on them as soon as the vehicle stopped, reloaded and re-engaged the target and he met the departments policy on shooting from a moving vehicle.

There inevitably comes a time when the decision of public safety and absolute resolve must compromise ... Protection, Integrity, GutS! ... Anyone thinking about being a Cop? ... I'll pass! ... Just a side note : I know every street in this chase, I've lived in Vegas most all my life. At one point in the chase where Charleston and Eastern and Fremont Street intersect, they were 2 to 3 miles from downtown Fremont Street (Glitter Gulch) but the chase continued north on Eastern ... These guys definitely had to be taken out !!!
