The coroner identified the man as 45-year-old Rudy Anderson. He was reportedly involved in a violent crime shortly before taking the woman hostage.
Security guards saw Anderson pulling a woman into the apartment in the hallway of the Santa Felloft apartment.
The video shows that he has a gun on her head.
After a while, a SWAT officer from the Los Angeles Police Department joined the unit and shot and killed Anderson.
Police say he shot other people in the area before entering the apartment building.
A bullet grabbed the head of a 14-year-old boy.
