Photographer Gregory Bojorquez tells Kurt Streeter in the LAT that he's still haunted by the wild, bloody scene in Hollywood last December, where he captured the image of dying gunman Tyler Brehm on the pavement as LAPD officers closed in. "I'm proud of what I did, documenting something that probably won't ever be seen again on Sunset and Vine. At the same time, it's awful: an innocent man losing his life like that. I'm not used to seeing stuff like this." Music producer John Atterberry died three days later of wounds in the attack.
