“Yeah it was around 11 o’clock. We were watching a movie and we heard a pretty indescribable sound,” said one neighbor who did not wish to be identified.

A nearby neighbor says he was sitting in his house when he realized bullets were coming through the walls.

FOX 8 was shown surveillance video off camera that showed a black truck coming to a stop at the intersection of S Rendon & Banks Street. At least two people were seen getting out. One them ran down the street while another could be seen taking a few steps before collapsing in the road. One of the neighbors is a doctor and says he tried to give the victims medical attention, but it was too late.

Others say the gun shots could be heard for several blocks down banks street and they believe that the suspects were shooting from a different vehicle.
