“So to our knowledge we don’t have any actual sounds of shots fired, that’s not to say that there isn’t another witness out there that may have heard something and that will be part of our investigation.”

There is a large police presence in the area, including the canine unit. Police have not yet released a suspect description as they are reviewing video footage and looking to speak to witnesses.

Rise N Shine Kids, a daycare located at the intersection, was put under lockdown as a precaution. Police said there is no relation to the shooting and is regular protocol.
