Neighbors told News5 they were shocked to hear the gunfire in the quiet subdivision east of Marksheffel Rd and Fontaine Blvd.  We’re told at least 5 shots were fired, with some rounds hitting homes.

Dale Mushak, who lives near the scene, said he thought it was fireworks until he heard screaming.  “We came to the corner and realized the gentleman had been shot. I heard his mom screaming, ‘Bring my son back, bring my son back.’”
