Police in Philadelphia showed a video of a man. The man walked to the Chinese shop with food. He opened the door and tried to shoot people inside.

People inside the shop tried to close the door. The man tried to open the door and he shot again. Then he stayed outside and shot through the door. He shot three people. Then he ran away from the place. Police say that they are still looking for the man.

Interesting words: shoot (kill or try to kill somebody with a gun), shot (past form of “shoot”).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
