Dramatic surveillance footage released by police in Evansville, Indiana show a almost hour-long encounter between officers and a man they say targeted them, firing round after round, first from an AR-15 rifle and later from a shotgun, reports CBS affiliate WTTV.

Freeman fired "dozens" of rounds from an AR-15 and shotgun, striking four patrol vehicles, four houses and two businesses in the area, Evansville Police Sgt. Jason Cullum said.

Police say Freeman ran away and fired more times until he was shot by an officer.

The entire shooting spree lasted about an hour, with Freeman walking through the 2400 block of North Kentucky Avenue firing off rounds. Police think that Freeman killed Kempf with a shotgun in error, believing he was a police officer.
