One lady came running down the block, another guy came running down to the fire station saying that somebody has been shot.//reporter: so it's in front of this brick building here? Yes. The one guy came running down, one lady came running down. Reporter: did it look like they knew him?

She left in the ambulance with the guy."5. Wide shot of police near shooting scene6.
