Las Vegas policeman shoots through windscreen during car chase

The dramatic scene came to an end when the officer unholsters his gun and fires through the window of his patrol vehicle.

The high-speed chase shut down traffic in an area covering several blocks of downtown Las Vegas.

Nunez is now in jail charged with two counts of murder, three of attempted murder of police, and one of disobeying an officer resulting in death. As the chase neared its end, Umana is seen in the video pulling his auto closer to the SUV and firing 11 shots through his windshield and seven shots through his open window.

Miranda, police say, tried to reverse the vehicle towards officers.

According to Kelly, LVMPD policy allows officers to pursue and fire at fleeing suspects if there is imminent danger to others.

Nunez ran away and tried to hide on school property where he was eventually caught and arrested.

The officer shot through his own windscreen in response.

He now faces charges of murder with a deadly weapon and attempted murder with a deadly weapon, according to the Review-Journal.

In a press conference, Kelly said Umana fired 31 rounds in total. The suspects reportedly fired a total of 34 bullets at the patrol vehicle.

Prior to spraying bullets through the car's front window an officer is heard yelling "shots fired" into his radio. However, Gleason said this situation posed a real threat to officers.
