One man who lives in the area, but didn't want to use his name, says this is normally a quiet area and he's stunned he heard shots ring out.

"20 rounds! I mean they didn't ever stop shooting. They didn't know what they were doing. Over here, everything is quiet. But to hear something like that early in the morning, that's kind of dangerous,” he said.
