22 times saturday night. the community is now looking at options to make the area more safe. >> we're even talking about what we could do to be proactive, whether it's security cameras to continue to keep the safe environment here. the family who lives inside the home admits to news 6 their son got into a fistfight with one of the suspects earlier in the night. as revenge, the two showed up at the house. the two men were aggressive, demanding they speak with his brother. soon after that, one of the men reached for a gun. with a 6-month-old baby inside, he slammed the door. falling to the ground. luckily, no one was harmed. >> we gave them everything. we're waiting for them to respond to us and let us know they caught the kids. it's sad. it's really bad. >> reporter: again, witnesses say it appears the suspects were not familiar with the neighborhood, driving around several minutes after the shooting, only to realize the only way out is the same way

at least 50 people standing in line. a few of them have been here for about two hours. one high schooler told us she came early because she's short and she wanted to be in the front so she could see. but all jokes aside, things are really serious tonight in the rubio campaign. he has just a few days to sway voters, largely out of trump's grasp. rubio is polling very well in florida, his home state. the latest monmouth poll puts him a few points behind trump overall and he's on top in the southern part of the state, 41% compared to trump's 30. that isn't the case in the north or here in central florida. many people attribute rubio's lacking behind to folks not taking trump seriously in the beginning. one voter admitted she didn't expect it to go this far. >> i really didn't get involved in the election until maybe two weeks ago when i realized that, pulling for trump. when i watch him in the debates,
