“I was just playing GTA, and then I heard a bang sound,” said neighbor Nathan Sanchez. “I just got really scared, and I was like, ‘Yo.’ I told my friends, I was like, ‘I heard a shooting,’ and they didn’t believe me, so I was just chilling in my house just worried. Once I come out here, I just see that someone got shot.”
