No suspects are in custody and no motives have been released.
“He was running in the middle of the street, trying to stop cars,” stated another witness. “He ran right by me screaming, ‘Call 911, I’ve been shot.’ So I called 911.” Other victims are said to have sustained bullet wounds to the hands and feet.
