Surveillance video captures brazen daytime shooting: Bob Brooks reports on Action News at 5 p.m., January 16, 2019

Surveillance video captured a brazen daytime shooting in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia and police are asking for help locating the suspects.

The video shows two victims walking down the 2000 block of Venango Street, near Frankford Avenue, around 1:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 9.

That's when the two suspects can be seen running up behind the victims.

One of the victims is punched in the head and then wrestled to the ground.

Then things escalate as one of the suspect pulls out a gun. Within seconds, the suspect fires off five to six rounds.

In the video, a school bus can be seen driving by in the direction where the shots were fired.

There is also a charter school right around the corner from the scene.

However, no injuries were reported.

Police released the surveillance video on Wednesday in hopes of catching the two suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Philadelphia police.
