It seemed to be a routine traffic stop, but the arrested car driver nearly killed the police officer who approached him.

The Arkansas police have released footage of the moment when the suspect Luis Cobos Cenobio, opened fire at Washington County Cpl. Brett Thompson, after being stopped for a traffic violation.

The gunman suddenly shot several times leaving the police's vehicle windows completely shattered with bullet holes everywhere. He could escape the shootout scene to be later arrested on November 11 Springdale, Arkansas.

The 29-year-old now faces life behind bars if convicted of the capital murder charge.

The Washington County Police Department said that a bodycam and dashcam footage of the terrifying shootout has been published.
