Man shoots in a shop – level 3

Police in Philadelphia have released this video of a gunman repeatedly firing into a shop, leaving three people injured. The gunman walks up to the Chinese food store and fires a shot inside.

In a separate video, victims are shown inside the store, struggling to hold the glass door closed. The gunman reaches around it and fires more shots. He then backs up and fires again before running away from the scene. Police say the suspect is still at large.

Interesting words: gunman (criminal who uses a gun), struggle (try to do something difficult), at large (not captured).
