People who live nearby said they are shaken up and speaking out.

Washington said he heard the shots ring out while at Lafayette Park which is nearby. 

“After a while starting hearing: pop, pop, pop; rapid gunfire, like return fire. so I really ducked behind the bathroom because I didn’t if a bullet would come that far over there," said Washington.
