Neighbors in the area said they heard the gunshots.

One woman said she refuses to come the store where the shooting happened.

Micheal, who lives nearby, said he was watching a movie and munching on a snack.

“And then boom – heard the shot,” Micheal said.

Micheal said he wished people would start to “mellow out.”

“A lot of people are getting hurt out here on these streets - I think there’s been enough time of that,” Micheal said. “It used to be way more mellow and it wasn’t gun shots and people getting shot. Everybody was friendly. Now, people feel threatened when you smile at them, so it’s not cool. Hopefully the peace comes back.”
