Since I'm the one who saw the fight and recorded it, and the same one who's reporting on this story, I can give you the most accurate details I can give you.
I was relaxing in my home, when I heard that "those black people were fighting again" (we're black ourselves by the way) and I decided to go outside to see what's up. So no, this isn't the 1st time they've been fighting. There's been 1 instance where they've been arguing at 2 in the morning. I should've recorded that too.
So I headed outside, to see they were basically screaming at each other. So I decided to run back and grab my phone. Man, that was the best choice I made in a while.
Before I recorded, the shirtless guy had the gun (the shirtless guy is seen in the video and the picture above.) Somebody snatched it from him and tossed it to someone else. He sprinted towards the person who had the gun. When that happened, that's when I went to go get the camera.
After I got back and started recording, they've started fighting in the street. I can't exactly remember how long it lasted, but I'm pretty sure it didn't last very long.
After the fighting, some of the people outside at that house went in the car. After a little bit, they slowly drove away. A little bit after they drove away... someone rolls down the window with a gun out of it. Someone yells "don't shoot!" and he shot the gun. After that, the people at the house start arguing again. And at 1 point of the argument, they yell "they gonna have to move now!"
After that... the police handle the rest, and ask if I can put the video on their Samsung flash drive.
Nobody was injured from the gunshot. It's unknown if either of the guys were injured from the fight.
Now I definitely wasn't expecting the whole fight and shooting thing to happen. Before those people moved in less than a year ago, everything was fine. Kids riding their bikes down the street (they still do, thank God it wasn't this day), and everybody enjoying themselves. A quiet and peaceful neighborhood. But hopefully they do move and everything will be back to normal. Because they will not ruin our block.
