Newly-released dashcam footage shows a tense traffic stop quickly devolving into a deadly shootout that nearly killed two Pennsylvania state troopers.

Some 50 rounds were exchanged between the would-be killer, Daniel Clary, Trooper Ryan Seiple, and Cpl. Seth Kelly during the Nov. 7, 2017 encounter on Route 33 in Northampton County.

According to local media, Clary was convicted of the attempted murder of two law enforcement officers, resisting arrest, escape, and disarming police on June 29. He has not yet been sentenced. (RELATED: West Virginia Supreme Court Is So Corrupt, Every Justice Faces Impeachment)

Prosecutors agreed to release the video almost two months after the trial, after local media filed a lawsuit to secure its release. The video was presented to jurors during Clary’s trial.

Kelly was seriously wounded when Clary opened fire from the driver’s side of his vehicle — he was shot in the neck and the leg, suffering a punctured femoral artery. Prosecutors say he was clinically dead at the scene and spent nearly two weeks in a coma.

He has since recovered and expects to return to work. The other officer, Seiple, was unharmed. Clary was shot four times, and surrendered after seeking medical care at a nearby hospital.
