ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- We now have new answers about a December shooting caught by red light cameras.  It happened at a busy part of the Loop and sent people scattering.  One of the suspects was able to blend in with ordinary citizens before escaping.

It started as a normal scene at Skinker and Delmar.  It quickly became mayhem and it`s all caught on camera by three red light cameras at the intersection.  You can see the shooting victim`s car windshields shatter.  Another car drove through the red light to get away, and then was nearly t-boned.

The shooting victim also drove against the red light and made a sharp left.  From another camera angle you can see the shooting victim`s car run head on into two cars about to go West toward the Loop.  You can see powder from air bags spraying from the cars.

Then, you can see someone crawling out of the wreckage of the shooting victim`s car. He appeared to slide over the trunk and look around before he jogged off camera.

We now know that was passenger Braland Norman.  In Federal Court he admitted he was carrying a gun along with 450 heroin capsules.

Norman also admitted throwing his weapon under a car in front of the Moonrise Hotel and then going into a bathroom to clean up.  Norman said he had to clean up blood from being shot in the back.  After cleaning up, he then reportedly tricked a valet into giving him the keys to a car he then stole.

Norman pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm.  Police are still working to identify the shooter.
