Surveillance video shows the gunman drive up in a gray SUV, park half a block from the house and jog up to the front porch.


He then pulls a gun out of his pocket, fires three shots at the home’s front door and jogs back to his car.

Video then shows the car leave the scene. Police said it was a Nissan Murano.

Last week, police released photos of the same suspect in the exact same clothing targeting the house at night. In both the photos and the videos, he’s wearing a yellow bandana as a face mask and an Adidas hoodie.

“As a resident here, just to see something like that and know that it’s happened three times. … I don’t know. That’s crazy. I don’t know,” a neighbor said.

Marietta police are now asking for the public’s help to identify the man, whom they said should be considered armed an dangerous.

Police said it is unclear why the gunman is targeting the home and that he has not been connected to any other criminal activity.

“We can’t explain why. We don’t have any motives,” officer Chuck McPhilamy said.

When Channel 2′s Michael Seiden stopped by the home Monday, he found an increased police presence and the front of the home riddled with bullets.

“Someone out there has to know why this is happening and who this individual is,” McPhilamy said.

Police are asking the public to avoid contact with the suspect and call 911 or Crime Stoppers with any information that could lead to his identification.
