ATLANTA (WGCL/CNN) — Police in Atlanta, Georgia are searching for a man seen shooting up an apartment complex.

The man, seen on video, walks toward Mechanicsville Apartment Complex in southwest Atlanta with a rifle in hand and begins firing multiple shots on Sunday.

"It's just scary because it could have been kids- it's kids that stay in the building, it's families and somebody could have seriously got hurt. It's scary," said Keyonna Thomas, a resident.

Police said that bullets tore through cars, several windows and glass doors.

The very next morning, the man returned and began shooting again.

"That just shows that he doesn't care about anybody. Why would you come back over here and shoot again? It's just crazy," said Thomas.

The apartment sit across from Dunbar Elementary School.

No injuries were reported.

"Around the time the kids are really coming home, people are coming from work and school and stuff like that. Somebody could have seriously been hurt," said Thomas.
