"I looked out my window (and there were) two guys shooting at each other," an emotional witness told Channel 2's Tom Regan.

The witness did not want to speak to us on camera but said she saw the gunfight.

Paramedics rushed the wounded man to the hospital. Union City police spent hours piecing together information and evidence in the deadly shootout.

"It's very unfortunate, I mean very unfortunate. In this day and time, it's just senseless killing happening," said resident Tammy Williams.

Police have not released the identity of the man who died.
