A man identified by police as 51-year-old Barry Freeman can be seen preparing to fire an AR-15 rifle at police officers during a May 11 incident in Evansville, Indiana, in which he and a neighbor were killed. A neighbor, Jeffrey Kempf, 56, was fatally shot during the encounter. Police believe Freeman mistook Kempf for a law enforcement officer and shot him. Kempf was pronounced dead at the scene. Police believe Kempf was checking on neighbors to make sure they were OK after hearing gunshots.

No deputies or officers were hurt, even though police believe they were Freeman's intended targets.

Police said Freeman fired dozens of rounds during the encounter. Gunfire from the incident damaged four law enforcement vehicles, four houses and two businesses. One of the police cruisers had 23 bullet holes.

Investigators believe Freeman was specifically targeting police and noted that he didn't fire at civilian cars that passed by, firing instead at police vehicles.

Surveillance footage from the shooting came from a neighbor's home, police said. Additional video was from officers' body cameras.
