One man is dead and another recovering after an odd confrontation inside a Clark gas station in Detroit.

A fight, caught on tape by surveillance cameras, shows two men get into an argument by the gas station's checkout area.

Police tell 7 Action News that the man who initially pulled the knife ended up getting stabbed repeatedly. He would later die.

Neither the deceased male, or the other person involved in the fight, have been ID'd publicly by police. At this time they've only revealed that the man who died was 34-years-old.

The man who survived is 49-years-old.

Surveillance video obtained by 7 Action News shows that the younger man pulled a knife during a confrontation, but he later set it down.

A third person, a woman, picked up the knife but eventually gave it back to the young man before the physical fight happens.

The man exits the view of a surveillance camera as he appears to swing the knife.

It is around this time that a man off-camera can be heard saying: "You're going to pull a knife on me?"

The two men can be seen wrestling each other to the ground, before the younger man gets back up and stumbles out. The man who was initially being attacked on camera demands a rag from a gas station attendant as he appears to have been cut as well.

The gas station's manager did not want to appear on camera, but said that his employee who witnessed the confrontation wasn't sure why the original argument started.

Police are still investigating. It is unclear whether any charges will be filed.
