PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia police are trying to find a man who fired into an Asian food store and wounded three people by releasing surveillance video of the crime on YouTube.

The video, which features images from inside the store as well as from a camera outside, shows a man clad in grey sweat pants and shirt walking up to the Chinese Food store Tuesday night and firing a shot through the glass front door as several young men scramble to hold the door shut.

Eventually, the gunman is able to push open the door far enough to fire several shots, wounding three of the men inside before he runs away.

Police say none of the victims suffered life-threatening wounds.
