A video posted on YouTube catches the six-second shootout between two Las Vegas police officers and a suspect Tuesday.
Police said the two officers approached the suspect in a pickup truck after getting reports of a stolen cell phone.
13 Action News Crime and Safety Expert and retired Las Vegas police Lt. Randy Sutton said the video does start off as a seemingly routine police stop.
At one point during the video, you can see one officer standing next to the driver side window of the truck, while the other officer is standing next to the passenger side.
"You're seeing a fairly nonchalant look, but then you see a movement [by the police officer] that movement is like he just saw something that raised his suspicions," Sutton said.
After about one minute and 20 seconds into the video, the officer on the passenger side walks over to the other side and begins speaking to the suspect.
Sutton believes the video then shows the suspect pulling out a gun and pointing it at officers before shooting.
"This is how life and death happens instantly in a police officer's career," Sutton said.
