A roadside shooting caught on camera in Canton, Massachusetts, wasn’t a random act, but an intended shootout, according to Police Chief Ken Berkowitz.

"Unfortunately in our society it's getting worse. You know, things that were confined to the city or confined to other areas have now spread out all over the place," Berkowitz said. "Criminals are more mobile -- more guns available and unfortunately more people are willing to use them."
