Video shows deadly encounter between gunman and police in Evansville

Police in IN released footage Tuesday of a man who they say ambushed them with an assault rifle and allegedly killed his neighbor. Police were originally responding to a 911 call of a different person reporting gunfire, and Freeman began shooting at the police officers when they arrived. Police say Freeman shot and killed his neighbor, Jeffrey Kempf, after mistaking him for an officer.

The Vanderburgh County coroner's office says Barry Freeman died Sunday night after being hospitalized following the Friday night shooting in Evansville. Freeman fired dozens of rounds from an AR-15 and a shotgun.

Surveillance footage also shows Freeman taking cover behind a vehicle and heading into the driveway several times to shoot at responding officers.

"This video from the Evansville Police Department is a reminder of the potential dangers officers can face daily", the South Bend Police Department said.

"Somehow we managed to get through this without any officers being injured", said Sgt. Jason Cullum.

WARNING- The video may be considered disturbing to some viewers.

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. Kempf was pronounced dead at the scene.

"The amount of rounds that were fired, when you look at no injuries and no deaths, there's really no way to explain it.other than we were lucky", said Cullum. Gunfire from the incident damaged four law enforcement vehicles, four houses and two businesses.
