The marshals began pursuing the car after they witnessed an argument between a man and his girlfriend in front of a local bar. Officers moved to detain the man, identified as Christopher Few, who took off in his car.

The footage, which is very graphic in parts, shows a confused scene in which several officers discuss the situation and how best to proceed. An officer appears to say, "I don't know who fired," to which another officer seems to respond, "I fired."

The officer wearing the body cam calls dispatch to ask about another officer's arrival time. He's asked about suspect injuries, to which he replies, "Severely critical."

Two officers can be heard discussing what to do next. One says, "You want me to call state police?" The other responds, "No listen. Get all these people away. And block this off over here," gesturing to the road.
