Two men and a woman have been charged with multiple counts after one of them was seen hanging out of a car and firing an AK-47 near Temple University.
Gregory Sizer, 30; Akeem Robinson, 31; and Jeanette Perez, 30, have been charged with multiple felony counts including risking catastrophe and being in possession of a firearm without a license, as well as related charges.
Surveillance video captured the three driving around in a silver Kia near the school as one of the men hung out of the rear driver's side door and fired the rifle near Broad and Norris streets around 3:09 a.m. Friday, Philadelphia Police Department Cpl. Jasmine Reilly said. The man firing the gun was Sizer, Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Jane Roh said.
No one was struck by the gunfire.

A police officer spotted the car, which had temporary Delaware plates, around 4 a.m. less than a mile from where the shooting took place, leading to the trio’s arrest, Reilly said.
Sizer was assigned a public defender. NBC10 called the Defender Association of Philadelphia for comment, but its offices were closed for the weekend. Robinson and Perez were not yet listed in online court records.
