Ben Miller, 24, lives on East Chestnut. He said he was sleeping and woke to what he thought was fireworks.
Then he heard a police car come flying down the street and slam on its brakes. That’s when he realized the sounds he heard were gunfire.
He looked out his window and saw a man lying on the street a couple houses away from his. More police and EMS had arrived.
“He was bloodied up. They were doing CPR on him. They got him on a gurney and took him away real fast,” Miller said.
