Houston Police released shocking bodycam and dashcam video on Wednesday from the Jan. 27 shootout and standoff with a man who left three officers injured.

Caballero, 31, fired dozens of shots at the arriving officers from an illegally-altered gun. The dashcam footage ends after a terrifying spray of bullets hits the patrol car and takes out the camera.

The responding officers are seen exchanging gunfire with the suspect for minutes, before Caballero takes off running down the street to carjack a woman in a white vehicle.

There's more gunfire exchanged between Caballero and officers before he drives off in the woman's vehicle.
