One suspect appears to be waving over the other guy. The other guy with the lighter hoodie walks over and points his gun at the camera. The two men approached the house and tried to open the door, but it was locked.

“It was like somebody was trying to kill this person. Whoever I don’t know. I’m sure it woke up the whole neighborhood because everybody opened the door and stepped out,” a neighbor said.
