Witness Jennifer Pisch said she heard gunshots and a child scream for help.

“We heard a bang, and my husband tried to find the control to lower the TV. By the time we lowered the TV, we heard a little girl say help," Pisch said. "So then my brother-in-law knocked on the door, on our door, our room door, and he said throw yourself on the floor, there’s shots outside, somebody’s shooting next door.”

Pisch said she then dropped down to the ground.

Later, she said, she saw a first responder carrying a child in his arms, trying to get her into the ambulance.
