MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Earlier this week, a Milwaukee man narrowly missed being shot to death by two strangers, and part of that night was caught on video.

Investigators are hoping you recognize the two men by their clothes or even the way they walk.

They're walking on 11th Street near N Wright early Monday morning, March 15.

They say the suspects pulled guns out on a man who was loading equipment from his house into his car around 6 a.m. that morning.

One of the suspects had laser beams on his gun and shot at the man several times. One of the bullets hit his ear.

The 54-year-old victim did get away, he was treated at the hospital and released.

But they're hoping to get the shooters off the street.

"Typically, people don't equip a weapon with a laser unless they intend to hit what they're aiming at, so that's unique," said MPD Lt. Christopher Moews. "But also, this is an average citizen, just like you and I, trying to get up and go to work and he's violently attacked and shot at. That's egregious to us."

If you know anything about this shooting, call Milwaukee Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS. You can also submit a tip through the P3 Tips App. 

Remember, your tip is always anonymous, and if your tip leads to an arrest, you get a cash reward.
