Darrell Winn said they were celebrating his birthday outside when the shooting started. He was one of the victims hit.

“Actually, I was in shock, because I was like ‘wow.’ I had on flip-flops, and I saw the wrap-around actually split. This was my first time ever being shot. It took me a minute to actually wrap my head around it,” Winn said.

Meanwhile, neighbors are scared and concerned for their safety, “To know that this happened right outside of our door, this is scary.”

Police are looking for suspects and leads.

Spruill talked to the father of one of the victims. He said his son and friends were leaving their friend’s apartment and didn’t live at the complex. He said they were innocent bystanders.
