Video shows gunman shooting into North Philly home with assault weapon

- Video shows a scary scene as a gunman with a TEC-9 assault weapon and a high capacity magazine opened fire into a house. Bullets crashed through the front window, the curtains and into the walls. Inside that house, a grandmother and two children.

"I get worried cause I got kids. Afraid they're gonna get killed or something," neighbor Zenia Sanchez told FOX 29.

"He keeps his finger on the trigger and it continues to fire," Philadelphia Police Captain Sekou Kinebrew said.

Zenia Sanchez lives just across the street from the shooting scene. She heard the shots. She knows the family who owns the home a feet from this school. She says this was too close for comfort.

Surveillance video shows the gunman step out of a red car around 12:30 in the morning. In his hands, a TEC-9 assault weapon. The gun jammed, he cleared it, then fired into the home, according to police.. Two children were asleep upstairs, their grandmother on the couch next to this first floor window. 

"We really want to get this dangerous person off the street and get that weapon off the street," Captain Kinebrew  said.

The family that lives there would not speak on camera, they're worried about more gunfire. Neighbors say it started when the victims asked a neighbor several times to turn down loud music on a school night. Minutes later, gunfire rang out.

"Not only we'll be looking for him, we're looking for the vehicle and whoever might have been driving that vehicle," Captain Kinebrew said.

No one was injured in the gunfire. The suspect was seen earlier in the evening at a nearby home.
