Luckily, no one was injured. Kevin Bullock tells Eyewitness News he was trying to get to his girlfriend’s house after speaking to her on the phone.

“When I was speaking to my significant other, she said she heard the first gunshot around 9 o’clock and then she heard another series of gunshots a few minutes after that, and she said she didn’t stop hearing them until after 12. She said she heard a lot of gunshots,” said Bullock.
