Bullet Hits Window of South Philly Daycare

Five kids were inside the daycare at the time of the shooting

A shooting outside a South Philadelphia daycare sends a bullet flying at the glass window at 'Itz a KidsThang' at 23rd and Mifflin.

Sources tell NBC10 that surveillance video shows three men getting into a heated exchange just before 6 this evening. The men were seen on the video pulling out their guns and firing off multiple shots, according to sources.

Rasull Gray, 20, was shot three times and rushed to the hospital. He's in stable condition.

"We seen them talking, then all of a sudden, we heard shots," daycare owner Sheila Smith told NBC10's Nefertiti Jaquez.

Smith tells Jaquez that five kids and three employees were inside at the time of the shooting. She says it's lucky the bullet didn't penetrate the window.

"We grabbed the kids and we all laid on top of the kids, covered the kids," said Smith, who also says she is just glad that everybody is safe.

Police will not confirm if Gray was one of the gunmen or an innocent bystander.
