It's unclear what led up to the traffic stop but police say they will release body cam and dash cam footage from the incident.

"More officers than usual out in the last few days. We have recovered about or seven guns. It's been a very dangerous area over the past week, so we have been concerned," said Pasadena Police Chief John Perez. "Again, we want the video to come out as soon as we can for the public to view it."
