One woman said she saw two men running from the scene. She said she previously saw them sitting in a grey car that police eventually had towed from the scene.

“I knew something was wrong. Who sits there idling at that time of night with your lights off? I watched them from my window and they sat, and sat. I told my husband ‘Something’s not right with that,’” the woman said.

    What is the relevance of saying this shooting was near a school? Why does the media aim to create fear in people?
