Detroit cops have released dramatic surveillance video of a shootout between a gunman and seven officers inside a police precinct last
weekend, which resulted in the suspect's death and injuries to four officers.
The frightening footage, released on Friday, shows two different angles of gunman Lamar Moore calmly walking into the station on Jan. 23.
The 38-year-old Detroit resident then approaches the desk before opening fire on the officers working there.
Several cops are seen crouching and returning fire with handguns. After a few more rounds are fired off, Moore jumps over the counter and continues to shoot.
Moore and a wounded officer continue to exchange rounds at point-blank ran before he circles around the table, collapses and eventually dies.
Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee said the video was released to show the "tremendous acts of heroism" of the Detroit police officers.
Moore's motive is unclear. But according to the Detroit News, he was under investigation for allegedly holding a 13-year-old girl as a sex slave.
Authorities told CNN that cops had stopped by Moore's home several hours before the shooting, but he wasn't at home. The residence where he was staying had caught fire and was severely damaged. That fire has been ruled as arson.
All four officers have been released from the hospital.
