Chandler police in Arizona have released a disturbing video taken inside a strip mall barbershop, where a little girl narrowly escaped being shot when gunfire shattered the glass window of the store.

Michael Hart, 23 and Rafael Santos, 21, have been arrested the case.

Hart was arrested Monday. He faces a number of charges, including discharging a firearm, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, endangerment, and possession of a weapon by a prohibited person.

Santos was arrested Tuesday. He faces charges of discharging a firearm, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and endangerment.

Chandler police say the suspects are connected with the shots fired case at the Paisanos Barber Shop Monday. The shop is in a strip mall located at Alma School Road between Ray Road and Chandler Boulevard.

The video released Wednesday shows the little girl playing inside the shop. When she sits down in a chair, gunfire explodes, shattering the window right next to her. According to the police report, two bullets struck the glass at head level.

Police believe that the shooting stemmed from an apparent dispute between Hart and the employees at a nearby tattoo shop.

Sgt. Mejia said the child was struck by glass debris while sitting inside the barber shop. She was transported to Chandler Regional Hospital with very minor injuries.

Police said nobody was hit by bullets.
