Las Vegas police release dashcam video of deadly shootout”

Officer William Umana leads the chase and can be heard yelling "shots fired, shots fired" into his radio device, calling for backup and warning other officers in the chase to stay back. Nunez was arrested after being found suffering from gunshot wounds and was taken to the hospital, according to the station.

These high-stakes decisions are made in the heat of the moment, and Officer William Umana was certainly managing a complicated and risky situation - conducting the chase, weaving between cars, radioing his position and actions and descriptions of the suspects, and above all, being shot at.

During the chase, the suspects fired several shots at the officers.

"As many shots as there were, I'm surprised [more people] weren't hurt because that's a lot of shots", Romero's grandmother Lorenza Conaway said.

Fidel Miranda, 22, and Rene Nunez, 30, are suspects in the fatal shooting of 25-year-old Thomas Romero, who was shot multiple times in the chest at a vehicle wash at 1402 N. Eastern Ave., according to the 'Police Activity' YouTube Channel.

What happened at the end of the chase?

Police traded gunfire with the two suspects during a chase that ended with the SUV crashing into a wall at an elementary school, Yatomi said.

The shooting "paints a picture of the dangers these officers dealt with that day", Kelly said. Police fired at Miranda, and he later died at the scene. This is the 10th officer-involved shooting in Las Vegas this year.

A civilian's auto is struck by flying gunfire. Nunez was found with a gun, reported stolen in northern Las Vegas on May 20. The one who survived faces multiple charges including open murder and attempted murder.

What was said about the officers?

As for the public risk, Kelly said, "We have citizens out on the roadways".

Kelly praised Umana and Soloman as courageous and heroic.
