Dramatic footage reveals a wild broad daylight shootout between cops and an armed burglary suspect in Baltimore — whose life ended in a hail of gunfire on Wednesday after he got off a bus and opened fire on police.

“This n—-a here banging at the police,” Steve Outlaw said, as he recorded the afternoon shooting.

“They made us get off the motherf–king bus,” he added. “[The suspect] banging at police…Getting juicy with these n—-s.”

The man who opened fire on police shot one officer and an innocent bystander before he was by shot and killed by law enforcement, according to The Baltimore Sun.

He had just stolen from two individuals in the parking lot of Logan Village — and was attempting to flee on a local bus — when police pulled it over and tried to arrest him just before 3 p.m.

Instead of surrendering, the man got off the bus and began shooting, causing mass hysteria in the crowded area, best known for its shopping centers and schools.

The video, which was posted on Facebook, had already garnered over 1.5 million views as of Wednesday night.

Throughout the video, people are heard screaming while the suspect walks back and forth between the bus’ two doors — casually leaning out and shooting at authorities.

After hiding behind a vehicle across the street from the bus, the man is seen exchanging gunfire with nearby cops as residents in the area flee.

He was ultimately shot by police and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The officer, who was wounded in the shootout, was hit in the leg and is expected to recover. The bystander, although in critical condition, will also likely survive.
