Scary surveillance video of man with rifle outside homes sends chills through community

SEATTLE — Many people have security cameras outside their homes. But on Halloween night, one of those cameras captured something far more sinister than a scary costume.

The image shows a man with what looks like a rifle at the back door of a home in the Laurelhurst area of Seattle.

Neighbors are very concerned after seeing this video. They say this is a peaceful neighborhood and they’re worried this man with a rifle could come back.

“He kicked doors in, so you would think it would make some noise,” said resident Marsha Crivello. “But no one heard anything.”

Seattle police say this was just one of four home burglaries in the same neighborhood on Halloween. Crivello says her house was one of those hit.

"I came home at 10 (p.m.) and saw my kitchen window was open and everything thrown on the floor," she said. "I went into my bedroom and drawers were open and closets were open and my second bedroom -- the same -- everything was open and jewelry boxes opened."

While the Seattle police say it's hard to tell if the rifle is fake or not, neighbors say the fear is real.

The local neighborhood watch is hoping to get more lights on the streets. If you have information in these burglaries, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-tips.

    you guys at Fox News pushing your anti gun agenda is getting very tiresome.I don’t see why we have to voteabout something that is already in our Constitution. Government it does not grant rights are treated does and we have the right to protect themselves with firearms.so having to vote for or against on these stupid 594 issue is asinine because we already have a second Amendment.in my eyes any law that is unconstitutional is no valid law and should not be followed at all. It is our duty to not follow them.and ask for your lame stream media propaganda report on some real goddamn news!

        This stuff happens all the time . The news is bringing it more to light to fight against the law. Believe it or not the crime rate has gone down a bunch since 10 years ago. So no ttim labardi is right on the money.

    Ha, I’m about 90% sure it’s fake, that’s an Airsoft version of an AR-15, the front handguard and birdcage look all wrong.
