Video shows a dark-colored SUV – apparently a Scion xB – stopping in the street near Kenilworth Avenue and Hawick Street just before 2 a.m. Monday.

A passenger gets out, walks into the street, gets into a crouching position, and fires several shots with a handgun in the residential neighborhood overlooking the Silver Lake reservoir.

One neighbor said the man appeared to be shooting into the reservoir.

"He wasn't aiming to hit anybody, I don't think," the neighbor told KTLA.

Residents told KTLA gunshots are a rare occurrence for the affluent neighborhood, which they described as calm and safe.
