Dashcam Shows Routine Traffic Stop Turns Into Police Shootout

** (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) **
A traffic stop in South Florida turned dangerous early Sunday morning when the driver opened fire on the officer who stopped him. The shooting was caught on a Miami Gardens police officer’s dash cam. After pulling the driver over for driving with his headlights off, the officer noticed he was wearing what appeared to be a bulletproof vest. Police said the officer asked the driver if he had any weapons in the car and asked the driver to get out of the car.

The officer and the driver, 37-year-old Gary Sprauve, exchanged gunfire, and Sprauve was shot. The officer’s vehicle was also shot on the passenger’s side during the gunfire. Sprauve, now wounded, drove away from the scene. The officer sped after him, and the chase ended at 191st Street and North Miami Avenue near the Church of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. On the way, police said Sprauve hit a civilian car. The man was taken to a Aventura Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police recovered the man’s gun from the scene of the traffic stop, plus an additional gun and a bulletproof vest from Sprauve’s car. The officer, who has been with the department nearly four years, was not injured. Sprauve, who was convicted of burglary in 2007, was charged with first-degree attempted murder of a law enforcement officer, two counts of owning a gun during a felony, two counts of owning a gun as a convicted felon and wearing a bulletproof vest while trying to kill a police officer.

  1. Driver’s wearing a bulletproof vest. Don’t tip him off that you noticed, go back to your patrol car (as though you’re checking license, writing a ticket) and wait on backup to perform a felony stop. Lucky, lucky officer.

  2. The descriptions states the Officer's vehicle was also shot on the passenger's side. From that point on, the vehicle complained of stiffness and pain in it's hinges. Especially in cold weather. Hash Tag: Police Car's Matter!

  3. cop saw the bulletproof vest and asked him to exit the car. thats a bad call ! right call is – go back grab your rifle, take position behinde the patrol car and wait for the backup.

  4. Always someone that needs to chime in with the "no such thing as a routine traffic stop" nonsense. Of course there is always potential for a deadly encounter but that doesnt mean that 99% of the time it's not the same "routine".
    Theres a chance of a deadly crash every time you get in your car but that doesnt mean your drive to the store isn't routine most of the time.

  5. That cop SUPER BRAVE!!👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼😮! He gets shot then assists in chase..Whoever shot that cop hope cops got him they got him sprayed him emptied their clips!! ANY1 WHO shoots at a cop signs their own death certificate! PERIOD!!.Forget arrestings that scum of the earth😑😠
