Here's what you can see on the red light video of Sunday night's shooting:

Police say the incident started when a gunman stepped out of a black SUV going southbound on Skinker Boulevard and started shooting into the car in front of him. The driver under fire reverses to hit the suspect's car. Then the victim steers east into oncoming traffic on Delmar Boulevard:
