Oklahoma authorities released dramatic footage showing the deadly encounter between double homicide suspect Michael Vance and highway patrol officers.

Vance exchanged countless rounds with officers before he was killed in a hail of bullets on Sunday.

For the past week, Oklahoma Police conducted an intense manhunt for Michael Vance, who was wanted in connection with the Oct. 23rd shooting of two officers, and two others people along with the brutal decapitation murders of his aunt and uncle Robert and Kay Wilkson.

Vance who is HIV-positive was awaiting trial for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girls when he embarked on his rampage.

The footage was captured from a police helicopter and the dashcam of a trooper’s vehicle, which shows the 25-minute chase on Highway 34, which began after Vance was pulled over for a traffic violation by Dewey County Sheriff Clay Sander.

Authorities said Vance immediately exited the vehicle armed with an AK-47 assault rifle and opened fire on the officer’s patrol car wounding Sander. He was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The night vision footage from the helicopter shows three troopers armed with M4 assault rifles exchanging hundreds of rounds with the murder suspect before he gets in his truck and plows through a three-vehicle roadblock.

Vance’s vehicle comes to a stop and he exits again before he was cut down by gunfire and collapsed.

Dashcam video shows officers driving at high speeds while same time firing their weapons at Vance.

“I’m taking shots. I’m taking shots,” one of the officer reports over his radio as he fires his weapon with one hand while holding the steering wheel with the other.

“Most gun battles — two or three rounds are exchanged. Obviously, that was not the case here, It was pretty obvious [that] this night this was going to end,” Oklahoma Highway Patrol Chief Ricky Adams said at a press conference in Oklahoma City.

“These guys did an exceptional job under terribly stressful conditions,” Adams added.
