Reporter: Tonight, police poring through surveillance and body cam video of a wild shootout outside of a busy las Vegas hotel. They said they're on the north side of the bellagio fountains. Reporter: The bellagio packed Friday night when investigators say an armed man demanded money from a cashier in the poker section of the casino. The alleged thief then running out, making it to the valet area, attempting to carjack a driver who just pulled up. Police were right there. The suspect was confronted by four metro police officers, at which time the suspect then turned, pointed a firearm at one of our officers and fired at least one round striking our officer in the chest area. Can you start fire department rescue this way? We're going to transport an officer. Reporter: Another officer, returning fire, shooting the suspect. The officer and the suspect were transported to umc hospital. The officer had his bulletproof vest on which probably saved his life. Reporter: And that officer's already back home tonight.
