The gunman, 29-year-old Luis Cobos-Cenobio, is in the country illegally and refused to stop at first, Fox News reported, and when he did pull over it was to kill the officer.
After the gunfight, the illegal alien jumped back into his car a sped off, but stopped quickly to release a female passenger who was shaken to the core.
Fayetteville Police and Arkansas State Police caught up with Cobos-Cenobio about a half hour later and he once again opened fire.
Wounded in the left arm and shoulder, he was eventually taken into custody — no one else was injured, thankfully,
“We are so thankful Corporal Thompson, all other officers who were involved, as well as citizens who were in the areas of the incident, were unharmed,” the Washington County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
