Police have released video after a carjacking at Seaholm High School in Birmingham.

Police allege Hubbard, who had a gun, demanded the maintenance worker to give him money, a cell phone and car keys - then fired a shot into the air.

The maintenance worker wasn't hurt.

Police said the stolen car was spotted on I-75 heading south and a police chase ensued into Detroit -- ending near 7 Mile and Conant.

Police were able to take Hubbard into custody, but said a second person may have been involved.

School was closed following the carjacking and security in and around the school has been increased since the incident.
