Police released video footage of the harrowing moment a 4-year-old girl narrowly escaped gunfire at an Arizona barbershop on Monday.

The video, posted on the Chandler Police Department’s Facebook page, showed the unidentified girl dancing around Paisanos Barber Shop before sitting on a chair near the window.

Soon, the 4-year-old is shown covering her face as at least two bullets fly through the glass window. She quickly gets up and runs away from the window.

One day later, Michael Hart, 23, and 21-year-old Rafael Santos were arrested in connection with the incident, according to police documents obtained by PEOPLE..
