“My daughter, she is 9, she heard some shooting. Her dad thought it was GlobalFest [fireworks] so he didn’t pay much attention,” says Kamal Sidhu, who lives nearby.
Police say when they arrived they found a man on the driveway suffering from several gunshot wounds.
He died after being taken to the hospital in life threatening condition. A trail of blood appears to be left behind on the driveway.
Next door neighbour Royce Gall says she saw emergency crews pull the victim from a black car that remained on the road in front of the home until about 3:00 the following morning.
“It was there on the slant. It was almost like it might have backed out of the driveway in a hurry and what stopped it from going any further? I have no idea.”
The canine unit, SWAT team and police helicopter were called in but were unable to locate any suspects. A number of teenagers were taken from the home by investigators. Police say they are questioning a number of witnesses and working on a suspect description.
Neighbours say a family moved into the home where the shooting happened about a month ago.
Investigators do not believe the attack was random.
An autopsy is scheduled for early next week.
