This is the dramatic cop-cam footage of armed officers chasing a suspect through the streets of Seville and arresting him after he was allegedly seen dumping bodies on the motorway.
The incident was filmed on the streets of the Los Remedios in the city of Seville in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia and was later shared on Twitter where it has been viewed 60,000 times.
The local authorities confirmed that the arrest was made by officers of the Civil Guard and Seville’s Local Police.
A Civil Guard spokesperson told Central European News (CEN): “The man was spotted throwing three people on a motorway. One person was dead while the other two were badly injured.
“Five other suspects have been arrested as part of the same operation.”
According to local media, the man abandoned a van on Arcos Street in the neighbourhood of Los Remedios and was arrested 800 metres (2,625 feet) from the scene.
The footage shows the suspect being chased through the streets before he tried to hide under a parked car where he is then arrested.
Local Police spokesman Mario Dominguez said: “We knew he was armed, and he made some movements while he was running that appeared like he was going to use a weapon.”
The Civil Guard confirmed that a gun was found in his abandoned vehicle, according to reports.
The spokesperson added that the suspect remains in police custody and is accused of being a gang member and disposing of bodies on the motorway.
The investigation is ongoing.
