Routine Traffic Stop Turns into Wild Shootout

Cpl. Brett Thompson with the Washington County Sheriff's Office thought Sunday would be just another typical day on the job. But the Arkansas police officer nearly lost his life when a routine traffic stop turned into a wild shootout between the officer and the suspect.

Dashcam video captured the moment Luis Cobos-Cenobio, 29, was pulled over in Tontitown by Cpl. Thompson. As you can see, before the officer even gets out of his car, the suspect opened his door and unleashed a barrage of gunfire at Thompson, who was hit in the shoulder. 

Thompson fires back, but misses, and Cobos-Cenobio gets back in the car and drives off, video shows.
