REVERE - Video obtained by the WBZ-TV I-Team shows the moment a gunman opened fire near Revere Beach on Sunday. Police are searching for suspects in two separate shootings.

The video obtained by the I-Team, taken from a window above, shows what appears to be a group of young people involved in a fight out on the street. A young man wearing grey shorts and a white top pushes back from the group, pulls out a gun and starts shooting.

The gunman appears to fire seven shots. At least one of them hit a 17-year-old woman in the back. She ran to Ocean Avenue across from Revere Beach where EMTs treated her injuries.

Shortly after that incident, a second woman was shot in the legs at the Shirley Avenue Bath House. Police say that shooting was unrelated.

Massachusetts State Police say they had advanced warning of what could be potentially disruptive behavior on Sunday. They also say they increased their presence at the beach. 

Residents say it was not enough to stop the violence that happened around the same time last year as well. WBZ asked the State Police about their operational plan and how many troopers were assigned to the beach, but they told us they don't discuss those plans. 

As for the suspects, police have not made any arrests in the shootings. The victims are recovering..
