Phoenix authorities released footage Thursday of a man shooting at police officers in a patrol car moments after speaking to them outside a convenience store.

The incident occurred Oct. 27 outside a convenience store in the area of ​​59th Avenue and Buckeye Road, the Phoenix Police Department said. Two policemen came out of the store and were walking towards a patrol car when a man started talking to them.

The officers got into the car and the man continued to talk to them through the driver’s side window, police said. Surveillance footage captured the vehicle pulling out of a parking spot as the suspected shooter pulls out a gun and fires a shot that hits the ground.

He then pointed the gun at the officers and fired another shot, police said. The second round hit the spotlight of the vehicle, police said. The man then ran into the store with the firearm, authorities said.

The officers are seen running after him with their weapons raised and ordering him to drop to the ground to handcuff him. He gets down on his knees with his hands in the air.

Both officers appear to hit him in the head with their weapons while the suspect is on the ground face down.

“Stupid f—,” an officer is heard saying. “What’s your fucking problem?”

“I’m going to blow your head off,” an officer says moments later.

As the man lies on the ground, he appears to be twitching in pain, prompting an officer to kick him in the back. The suspect was taken to a hospital for unspecified injuries before being booked into jail.

Both officers were uninjured. One has been with the police for less than a year and the other has been with the department for six years.

Phoenix police officers capture a suspect who allegedly shot them moments before.
