Newly released dash cam video of the event, which took place earlier this week, allegedly shows a suspect take out an AK-47 and start firing at Carroll County officers after being pulled over.

According to Breitbart, the suspect, 28-year-old Pier Shelton, was shot and killed by police. One officer, Deputy Repetto, suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the altercation.

The Carroll County Sheriff's Office said in a statement, "If not for the heroic efforts of all Officers and agencies involved and to Corporal Troutt and Deputy Repetto for stopping the suspect, this incident could have resulted in more Officers being injured or killed."

They pointed out that "the suspects could have posed an even bigger threat to the public as this occurred in a residential area, and at this time of the morning, people are getting ready for work and staff is getting ready to arrive at the school."
