Newly released video shows a rolling gun battle between Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers and the fugitive who was being sought in connection with two homicides and the shootings of four people, including two Wellston, OK, police officers last week.
Dashboard cameras inside several patrol cruisers captured the dramatic shootout on Sunday. Troopers shot and killed Michael Vance Jr. after a high-speed chase in western Oklahoma. It was the culmination of a week-long manhunt, reports KWTV.
On Tuesday, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol released about five minutes of footage from the helicopter and several cruisers.
"This man had every intention of taking officers with him," said Oklahoma Highway Patrol Chief Ricky Adams.
Authorities said Vance had been armed with an AK-47 and emptied at least two 30-round magazines during the gun battle.
None of the troopers were injured. All five are now on routine administrative leave.
