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.
