THE SLOW DOWN. GOOD ON THE NORTHBOUND SIDE. THAT’S A LOOK AT TRAFFIC. BACK TO YOU. CRIS, THANK YOU. INVESTIGATORS ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HAPPENED JUST BEFORE POLICE-INVOLVED SHOOTING AFTER A MAN SEEN IN THIS SURVEILLANCE VIDEO IS SHOT DEAD BY AN OFFICER. HOLLYWOOD POLICE SAY IT STARTED WITH THAT GUNMAN SHOOTING AT A CAR. WHEN OFFICERS SHOWED UP, THEY SAY THEY WERE FORCED TO FIRE. RIELLE CREIGHTON IS LIVE FROM THE HOLLYWOOD POLICE DEPARTMENT WITH MORE ON THIS INVESTIGATION. Reporter: SO FAR POLICE ARE RELEASING FEW DETAKES ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED. THEY FOUND A BULLET RIDDLED WITH BULLETS. FOUND A SUSPECT, SHOTS FIRED AND THE GUNMAN WAS KILLED. IT’S 2:13 SUNDAY AFTERNOON AT THE CORNER OF SCOTT STREET AND NORTH 70th TERRACE. WATCH AS HOME SURVEILLANCE CATCHES A MAN WALKING BY. A MAN APPROACHES, PULLS A GUN AND SHOOTS. A NEIGHBOR HEARD THE SHOTS AND WALKS OUT THE FRONT DOOR. THAT’S THE CAT NEXT TO THE FENCE. REPORTER: POLICE WERE CALLED TO THE SCENE WHERE THEY FOUND A SHAKEN UP DRIVER WITH BULLET HOLES IN HIS VAN. HE TOLD OFFICERS HE WAS DRIVING THROUGH AND DIDN’T KNOW THE SHOOTER. HE GAVE A DESCRIPTION OF THE SHOOTER. OFFICERS SEARCHED THE AREA VIGOROUSLY AND DID FIND SOMEONE THAT MATCHED THE DESCRIPTION ABOUT FOUR BLOCKS FROM THE ORIGINAL CALL. REPORTER: AT 67th AVENUE — CAPS RACING UP AND DOWN THE STREET. Reporter: POLICE SAY THEY MADE CONTACT WITH THE SUSPECT, SHOTS WERE FIRED, THE GUNMAN WAS KILLED. POLICE ARE GIVING LITTLE DETAIL WHAT HAPPENED IN THOSE MOMENTS. THERE WAS AN ACTIVE INVESTIGATION AT THIS TIME AND IT’S TOO EARLY AND IN THE PRELIMINARY STAGES TO GIVE ANY MORE INFORMATION. REPORTER: ONE NEIGHBOR TELLS ME HE SAW IT ALL. WE HEARD BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG LIKE THAT. I HEARD THEM YELLING WHEN I FIRST CAME OUT OF THE HOUSE. THEY HAD HIM ON THE GROUND. ONE COP SAID DON’T GET UP OR I WILL HAVE TO KILL YOU. Reporter: WAITING TO HEAR
