Newly released dash cam video footage shows the dramatic moment a man opened fire on a Washington County corporal (US).
Luis Cobos-Cenobio led Cpl. Brett Thompson on brief a chase near Tontitown and eventually pulled over and immediately started firing several rounds.
During the shootout Cobos-Cenobio gets out of his vehicle and takes up a firing position at the front of the police car whilst taking aim at the police officer who can be heard frantically called for back-up via his radio.
At one point, a member of the public drives by the incident, slows down and then immediately reverses away from the incident at speed.
It would appear that Cenobio only gave up trying to shoot the officer after running out of bullets.
The corporal was not hurt during the shooting.
Cobos-Cenobio finally surrendered to police after crossing into Springdale, then Fayetteville and back into Springdale.
He’s accused of attempted capital murder, committing a terrorist act, fleeing and two drug complaints.
