Video: Traffic stop turns into dramatic pursuit, gunfight

During a traffic stop the suspect seems compliant until he fired at the officer

By Kyle Feldshcer

NORTHVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Northville Township police Thursday 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 was shot and killed by a Michigan State Police trooper early Tuesday morning 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.

John Werth, Northville Township public safety director, said Thursday that Stevenson was stopped by police after attempting to start a fire at the home of an 18-year-old man who he previously targeted twice.
