The hunt is on for a man who shot 3 people with an assault rifle in Longview this afternoon.

The man police are looking for is Lee Brightman, Jr., 19. Police are still looking for him. He's said to be driving a yellow, four door Crown Victoria. 

Police have arrested Terrance Booker, who is also thought to be involved in the shooting, for a felony warrant for possession of a firearm by a felon.

The shooting occured in the six hundred block of Aurel Avenue, which is near the intersection of Mobberly and East Birdsong.

The fued between Booker and Brightman, says authorities, has gone on for some time. Brightman allegedly opened fire with an AK-47, shooting about twenty-eight rounds, in front of Booker's home. Booker, inside the home, started firing back. That's when Melissa Lilly and her seven year old daughter, Chloe, were caught in the crossfire. Both Melissa and Chloe were shot in their feet. "He sprayed us, shot the house up, kicked in the door and tried to come up in there on us," described Lilly, referring to Brightman. "He wasn't giving up, he wasn't letting up off the gun, none of that. My baby got grazed, got hit in the foot. I got grazed in the foot. It's a wake up call, really, because we could've been dead. We're blessed, truly and I thank God that nobody died."

Right now, it's unknown what relation Lilly has to Terrance Booker. Luckily, no one else was injured in the shooting.

Residents of the neighborhood say that lots of children play in the neighborhood and now they're worried for their safety.
