On resident said she was in bed when she heard gunshots. She got up to see a man running down the street and disappearing around a corner, but police were not far behind.
“It’s a really rough street, like I tell people that come and visit ‘don’t park on this street, park on the next street over,'” said resident Cindy Pankopf. “There’s no good lighting, and there’s just a lot of regular activity down here.”
This is a developing story.
