VIDEO: Mich. Traffic Stop Leads to Pursuit, Gunfight

Northville Township (Mich.) Police have released a video showing the incidents before this week's fatal police shooting in Washtenaw County, including an exchange of gunfire during a traffic stop and a high-speed chase.

Gabriel Stevenson, 18, was shot and killed by a Michigan State Police trooper early in the morning on Feb. 12 after he lunged at police with a knife, according to investigators. The video—recorded on a Northville Township patrol car camera—ends before that final confrontation is shown.

The video contains strong language and includes an exchange between 18-year-old Stevenson and Northville Township police who pulled him over after he allegedly attempted to start a fire at the home of an 18-year-old man who he previously targeted twice.
