MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - The Mesa Police Department released a new video featuring body-camera video and audio from a drive-by shooting at a food truck event earlier this month that left a baby dead and six other people hurt.

Under emotional music, the video starts off with body-camera video from an officer in their vehicle rushing to the scene on Oct. 16 around 9:30 p.m. on Guadalupe and Dobson roads.

"Three kids were shot, one was shot in the leg, one was shot in the head," the dispatcher can be heard saying.

The video then goes black and white, showing the scene from an officer's body camera.

"She's 9 years old. She was shot right in the pelvis," an officer said.

A girl can be heard in agony say, "I can't, I can't." The body-camera shows first responders helping those wounded with audio of a woman screaming. The video cuts to more chaos and police helping treat the wounded. It continues with Mesa Police Chief Ken Cost speaking from an old news conference that was held nearly two weeks ago.

"There are people who know the suspects who committed this crime. They know who the shooters are," said Cost.

Investigators say the gunshots came from a white or silver Kia Soul-type or small box-type SUV, which is considered a vehicle of interest. On Oct. 21, police searched an apartment complex in south Phoenix and a tow truck was seen taking away a silver Kia Soul. 

Also caught in the crossfire, a Mesa mother of five who was waiting on her order when the shots rang out.

“I was scared for my life for my daughter’s life, just hearing them go off so many gunshots,” said the mother.

She is sharing with Arizona’s Family for the first time, what she saw that evening.

“Everybody just started hitting the ground getting their kids and running, but somebody pulled me behind a car, it must have been another customer that was in line and I just kept looking back and seeing my daughter on the ground,” said the mother.

When the bullets stopped, her daughter was not hurt…in total four kids were shot and three adults.

Baby Sebastian Duran died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Police have not announced any arrests.

“They should definitely take a second into what happened beforehand before the whole shooting happened,” said a shop owner who didn’t want to be identified.

Nearby Shop owners said they believe a fight hours before in which a man was attacking his girlfriend, could somehow connected.

“Because people from the food truck came to intervene with that fight,” said the shop owner.

The police department is urging anyone to check their phones for pictures and video or dashcam video and contact the Mesa Police Department. They also want businesses and homeowners in the area of Guadalupe and Dobson roads to check their surveillance videos. Police offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the shooter.
