Ben Miller, 24, lives on East Chestnut. He said he was sleeping and woke to what he thought was fireworks, he told LNP on Thursday night. 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.
