MAHNOMEN -- Mahnomen County Sheriff Josh Guenther has released a short segment of video from when a deputy shot a suspect at the end of a pursuit following a traffic stop in mid-March in northwest Minnesota.

The sheriff says a Twin Cities group is accusing the deputy of attempting to murder 20-year-old Shequoya Basswood and has put a "Wanted" poster on social media.

Guenther says as the deputy was arresting another female, he saw Basswood had a gun, ordered her to drop it, and she pointed it at him.

Authorities say a the time of the incident, there were warrants for Basswood's arrest related to an assault last summer at Roy Lake.
