Details, including body cam footage, have emerged from a wild officer-involved shooting in Las Vegas last week during which more than 60 rounds were exchanged.
In the above video, a lawman identified as Officer William Umana, 37, became involved in a lengthy vehicle pursuit following a shooting reported at an area car wash that left a man mortally wounded earlier that morning. After taking fire from two men inside a stolen 2002 Ford Expedition, Umana returns fire at the vehicle, even shooting through his own windscreen.
As the SUV comes to a stop in the area of Ogden Avenue and 18th Street, near an elementary school, Umana performs a magazine exchange on his Gen 3 RTF2 Glock 17 and moves to engage the two men, later identified as Fidel Miranda, 23, and Rene Nunez, 30.
Miranda, with a lengthy criminal history that included weapon charges, was killed in the exchange. Nunez, a felon with robbery and host of other convictions, was taken into custody.
Further explained in detail by LVMPD Asst. Sheriff Tim Kelly in the below briefing, the suspects, armed with a S&W40VE, a Glock 21 .45ACP, and a Taurus PT111– the latter reported stolen– fired 34 rounds at the officers. Shell casings
