The melodrama that seemed to characterize his life continued to the bitter end, with a crouched and bloodied Perez shouting into an Instagram video during Monday's assault: "They are firing at us with grenade launchers". "We are trying to negotiate because there are innocent people here, there are civilians ... they literally want to kill us".

"The terrorist acts committed by this terrorist cell showed the destabilizing objectives that they were pursuing", Reverol said.

The Venezuelan Information Ministry didn't respond to requests for more details on the police operation and whether Perez had escaped, been killed or captured.

According to an Interior Ministry press release, police surrounded a house in the impoverished El Junquito area of western Caracas and exchanged gunfire with the rebels, leaving two police dead and five wounded.

President Nicolás Maduro's government has called Pérez a "fanatic".

"Venezuela, don't lose hope. Now only you have power so that we can all be free".

The shoot-out follows a six month long manhunt for Perez, who had previously headed a series of armed attacks on government institutions.

Though the fate of Perez remains unknown, CNN reported that an anonymous top government official had informed the news agency that he had been killed in the confrontation.

'What a coward now that he's caught like a rat!' tweeted Prisons Minister Iris Varela.

Days after his brazen helicopter attack, Perez rode into Caracas on a motorcycle and appeared at an anti-government protest.

In June 2017, Perez and several unidentified accomplices used a stolen helicopter to launch four grenades at the Supreme Tribunal in Caracas, before shooting at the interior ministry with firearms.

Perez claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was to fight what he said was a tyrannical government.

He went into hiding afterwards, only to pop up two weeks later at an opposition vigil for anti-government protesters killed during demonstrations that rocked the country previous year.

Earlier Monday, Perez, 36, posted video clips showing blood dripping across his face as gunshots rang in the background.

They smashed photos of Mr Maduro and his predecessor, the late Hugo Chavez, handcuffed about a dozen soldiers and berated them for supporting a "dictatorship" in Venezuela. Perez says his team stole around 26 AK-103's and over 3,000 munitions for the rifles, as well as pistols.
