    I was walking by that area around that time and heard men arguing or speaking loudly near direction of American Ice Co. As I began to walk down Sherman ave i heard the 8 shots as did a guy riding his bike on the block at the same time. What happened?

    I heard them at exactly 2:33am. Rapid succession and some even sounded like there was a second firearm (overlapping sound).

    Probably nobody hit — the gang-bangers have this funny way of shooting — holding the gun sideways down by their hips. i think it was probably in some movie. The don’t hit the people that they are trying to, but hit bystanders, instead. And there probably weren’t many bystanders around at 2:30 in the morning.

      +1 They only do that in movies. Even the most ignorant thugs will not do that.

    I’m at 11th and W. Myself and my buddy popped out of my building for a cigarette right after this occurred. We did not hear the gunshots. While standing on my stoop, two officers came walking out of the alley right next to my building and asked if we had seen “anyone fleeing in a hurry and wearing a backpack.” Unfortunately we had no info to give them and they told us we should get back inside after we finished smoking.
