“I WAS WORKING ON MY YARD AND I WENT INSIDE OF MY GARAGE TO LOOK FOR SOME TOOLS AND AROUND 1 O’CLOCK, WHILE I WAS INSIDE I HEARD SOME SHOOTING AND THERE WAS THIS GREY SUV THAT PASSED BY MY HOUSE ON FLAMINGO. SO, I WALK OUT OF THE GARAGE AND THEY MOVED A LITTLE FURTHER SOUTH FROM MY HOUSE. AND AH, THE CONTINUED SHOOTING BULLETS. I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT KIND OF WEAPON THEY WERE SHOOTING OR WHAT THEY WERE SHOOTING AT, BUT AH, THERE’S LIKE FOUR PEOPLE INSIDE THAT SUV. THEY GOT OUT OF THE VEHICLE. LIKE, CONTINUED HEARING BULLETS BEING FIRED. I DIDN’T KNOW THAT THEY WERE SHOOTING AT. ABOUT THAT TIME A WHITE TRUCK PASSED BY AND THEY ASKED ME, ‘WHAT WAS HAPPENING WITH THAT PEOPLE ON THOSE SUV?’ I SAYS, THEY’RE SHOOTING BULLETS, I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY’RE SHOOTING AT. SO, I ASKED HIM IF YOU COULD GET THE LICENSE PLATE NUMBER YOU COULD GIVE IT TO THE SHERIFF. SO, THEY FOLLOWED THEM, WHILE THEY WERE, WERE DRIVING AWAY.”
