Graphic security camera video shows the moment three suspects opened fire on a Jonathan Avenue residence Tuesday, killing a 28-year-old man from Rockford Illinois. And the murder is being called a "hood assassination" across social media, MTO News has learned.
Police were called to the scene of the crime around 5:30 p.m. The victim, Louie Lee, was taken to the hospital but later died.
Surveillance video shows three masked individuals - who appear to be trained assassins - approaching the house and opening fire on the occupants inside once they open the door.
The assassins wore gloves, and put on booties before entering the home, in an attempt to conceal their identities.
Louie’s wife, Tyshema McIntosh Lee, said of her husband, “He was a family person. He wasn’t really for this type of stuff.”
Lee said she was inside when the shooting started.
“It happened real fast. They just opened up my door and started shooting. At first, they left back out, which I thought they’d left, but then they came back in and started shooting again,” she said.
