Reports are that about 4:30 p.m., a group of men was sitting on the sidewalk when a lone gunman walked up and opened fire at members of the group.
An alleged eyewitness told that the sound of explosions sent persons in the area scampering for cover.

The police reported that the gunman fled from the scene after the shooting.
The police were called and during a search of the area, the body of a man was found with gunshot wounds.
A female was also found to have been shot during the attack.
An investigation revealed that the female is a nurse.
