A man caught on surveillance video shooting two British tourists over the summer in Los Angeles' Venice Beach neighborhood is being sought, police said Wednesday.

The Los Angeles Police Department identified the suspect as Brandon Manyo Dixon.

The LAPD said Dixon and his friend got into an argument with two tourists from the United Kingdom outside a bar on July 30.

The argument then turned into a physical fight, police said. Dixon allegedly chased the victims with a gun and shot them. The victims survived.

Video footage released by the LAPD shows a man chasing two people in a crowded area and appearing to fire a weapon.

"Both victims sustained significant wounds from the gunshots and were hospitalized for their injuries," police said.

Authorities are still searching for Dixon, who is considered armed and dangerous.
