Authorities searching for men in caught-on-camera shooting at home in Carson

CARSON, Calif. (KABC) -- Deputies are asking for the public's help in locating two men accused of shooting at a woman in Carson after ringing her doorbell.

The shooting occurred about 6 p.m. Dec. 21 in the 1800 block of East Turmont Street, near Broadacres Avenue School. Deputies said a woman opened her door after hearing her Ring doorbell go off, and saw two men standing outside pointing guns at her.

Video captured one of the suspects knocking on the door while the other man stands further off in the distance, apparently trying to stay out of sight.

When the woman answers, both suspects open fire in the direction of the woman before running off.
