On Monday night bangs were heard on the street. As we all know, NYE is coming up and people are already setting off fireworks, so nobody thought anything of it and so police were not called. The bangs were actually gun shots.

At around 3pm the next day, according to eyewitnesses a woman was found hysterical outside the building. She was the wife of one of the men, who was renting the building. Police were on scene.

It is believed that the building had a grow shop in it and therefore is likely linked to a drug crime.
