Police say the driver got out of his car, produced a handgun and started shooting into the crowd of people. Three people were shot.

Two of the officers returned fire, and struck the gunman in the neck and shoulder.

After shooting into the crowd, the driver got back into the car, traveled a short distance and crashed. The driver died on scene.

The two other men in the gunman's car were placed under arrest.

No police officers were injured. The Officers are now on administrative leave, which is standard procedure.
