This is the moment a suspect opens his car door and shoots at police during a high-speed pursuit in Texas.

Cedar Hill Police Department has released dashcam footage of the police chase on Wednesday (26 June) that started in Cedar Hill and ended with a shootout in Dallas.

The chase started when officers tried to detain Jerail Fuewell, who got into his Mercury sedan and drove off.
