Wow: Video of Today's Hollywood Shootout
Via the Twitvid account of Rich Kingston, who took video today of a gunman shooting randomly at people and cars at the Sunset and Vine intersection. (LAPD rushed to the scene and shot the gunman, who died. At least one person was struck by the gunman, according to the L.A. Times, but it looks like he will survive.) Kingston appears to have taken the video from the Los Angeles Film School building; watch as cars speed out of the way once they realize they're in danger.
Quite a video, but the L.A. Times has an scarier, close-up one here. And a third video has apparently been sold to news outlets. That's what happens when you shoot up a major intersection in Los Angeles -- there's video coverage from every angle.
