Neighbors say around 100 college-aged people gathered for a pool party that spilled onto the residential street. Moments later, you can hear as many as 30 rounds fired as bystanders run for cover.
Witnesses say the crowd showed up after a post was shared on social media.
Neighbors in the area, who did not want to speak on camera, told CBS3 the shootings spilled over into the street — damaging a car with one shot even going through the siding of a nearby house, hitting the inside stairwell.
Investigators believe there was a “significant” number of people on the street who may have witnessed or videoed an altercation that led to the shooting.
