Perez shouted over a spray of gunfire that the group wished to surrender, but that the police outside were set on killing them. In an earlier video, the former pilot states that the men are negotiating their surrender with authorities, and says that they are "here, fighting" for the future of Venezuela. Perez said on Instagram that there were women and children in the home. "They resisted, they were killed and five criminals were captured", the statement said.
A statement from the Ministry of Interior Relations added that two officers were killed and another five were wounded during the operation. He recalled that they were heavily armed with high-caliber weapons, opened fire on the officials responsible for their capture and tried to detonate a vehicle loaded with explosives.
Maduro responded in the following days, vowing to meet Perez with bullets.
Mr Perez appeared with a bloody face in almost a dozen dramatic Instagram videos earlier on Monday, saying he was surrounded by authorities shooting at him with grenade launchers.
Perez urged Venezuelans "not to lose heart. Now only you have power so that we can all be free".
The Venezuelan Program of Education and Action on Human Rights has called for the government to provide a full report.
'What a coward now that he's caught like a rat!' tweeted Prisons Minister Iris Varela.
Perez, an ex-police officer who previously starred in an action film, had been a fugitive since the June attacks, calling for an uprising against what he called president Nicolas Maduro's "tyrannical" government. "Where is the courage he had to attack military units, kill and injure officials and steal weapons?"
He rose to fame in June after allegedly hijacking a police helicopter, flying over Caracas' centre and firing shots at and lobbing grenades on the Interior Ministry and the Supreme Court. He also urged Venezuelans to continue their fight for freedom.
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 a year ago.
In the footage posted on his Instagram account, Perez said he and his companions were surrounded and pinned down by police marksmen on a roadway at El Junquito.
