Vegas officer shoots through windshield during chase


Newly released body cam video shows the moments when a police officer opened fire on a group of suspects during a pursuit.

In the dramatic video from the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, Officer William Umana attempts to stop a pair of suspected murderers in Las Vegas. Umana drives for several minutes, shooting through the windshield of this police vehicle.

After firing more than 30 shots, the pursuit ended when the suspects crashed their vehicle into the side of a building.

One suspect was shot and killed by police officers after he reversed the car towards them.

The second suspect tried to make a run for it but was eventually caught and apprehended soon after.

Both suspects are accused of shooting and killing an individual at a car wash, two hours before the high speed pursuit.
