VIDEO: Illegal Immigrant Opens Fire on Arkansas Officer at Traffic Stop
Newly released dashcam video shows an incident over the weekend in which 29-year-old Luis Cobos-Cenobio—reportedly an illegal immigrant—opened fire on Corporal Brett Thompson of the Washington County (AR) Sheriff's Office.
According to Fox News, Corporal Thompson tried to initiate a traffic stop in Tontitown, located just outside Fayetteville.
The driver refused to stop and the officer reportedly initiated a brief chase. After eventually pulling over, Cobos-Cenobio got out of his vehicle and began shooting at Thompson, officials said.
Thompson quickly returned fire, and Cobos-Cenobio fled the scene.
The gunman was eventually taken into custody in Fayetteville. He has been charged with four counts of attempted capital murder, committing a terroristic act, fleeing, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to police.
