Detectives released surveillance video and images Tuesday in an attempt to catch a gunman who fired several shots into a house – injuring a 14-year-old boy – earlier this month in North Philadelphia.

At around 10:15 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 19, the suspect had a brief verbal altercation with a man who lives on the 2100 block of W. York Street, investigators said. After the man went back into his house, the gunman fired through the front door, according to police.

Authorities said a teenager inside the house was struck in the buttocks and hospitalized with nonlife-threatening injuries.
