A Las Vegas police officer exchanged gun fire with two suspects in a 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.

About two hours later, police said they saw a vehicle matching the description of the one the suspects were driving, Las Vegas police Capt. Yasenia Yatomi said. During the high-speed chase, the two men fire at police several times, and Officer Umana fires back, blasting a holes in his car's windshield.

Police said the suspects fired 34 shots at officers before the SUV crashed into an elementary school.

A shocking video has captured the moment a police officer shot through his own windscreen in an attempt to gun down suspects during a police chase.

The suspects were later identified as Fidel Miranda, 23, and Rene Nunez, 30. When detectives attempted to stop the vehicle, police say the driver fled at a high rate of speed and officers gave chase. The victim of that shooting later died at a hospital.

The two suspects allegedly fled after a July 11 traffic stop conducted by cops investigating the murder of a man near a auto wash, FOX5 Vegas reported.
