East point police rushed to the Lakeside Preserve subdivision just over a week ago after receiving numerous calls about a person walking in the area shooting a rifle.

Dramatic surveillance video released by police shows the moments the man armed fired randomly at drivers.

Officers arrived and when they tried to approach the man he ran into the woods.

Police have asked for anyone who may have been affected by this crime to come forward. 

Investigators said the shots were fired on January 23 between 1 and 2 a.m. in the area of Camp Creek Parkway and Fairburn Road.
