Screen-shot-2013-05-23-at-3.45.38-PMDramatic surveillance footage shows the moment a man opened fire with an AK-47 inside a busy Philadelphia strip club.

He burst into the Purple Orchard Gentleman’s Club, in Elmwood, and sprayed the bar with bullets.

Reports suggest he was thrown out of the club after arguing with a DJ who refused to play his favorite song. Cops are now hunting the shooter — believed to be 21-year-old Henry Pettigrew — and an as yet unnamed friend.

The video clip, released by Philadelphia police, shows him arguing with bouncers and being escorted out. He then returns minutes later with the assault rifle. Firing shots inside the club, he moves to open a door but falls onto the floor.

Back on his feet, he again swings open the door and fires inside multiple times. He is then seen fleeing the scene, jumping in to a light colored sedan to make his escape. One person was shot but their injuries were not believed to be serious.
