Police said Hill fired gunshots into a crowd of thousands of people Monday night as they packed the streets of Bricktown for game five of the playoff series between the Thunder and Lakers. Eight people were shot. A pregnant woman also received blunt force trauma when she was either kicked or punched after the shots were fired.

There are surveillance cameras in the area, but police don't know if they recorded any video of the shooting. Several of the cameras are down because of construction in the downtown area.
