    "I heard like 15 to 20 shots getting right off. I initially thought it was fireworks, but then there was an elderly woman, like, cowering in the corner of my doorway, and I went downstairs and checked on her and asked her what happened and she said, 'They're shootin', they're shootin','" Kenny Roberts, a witness says.

    Police are still questioning several people in the case.
