"It was just sad. Why would they pick this block to do something like that?" said Ella Ervin, a neighbor.
Officers responded to the neighborhood near Green Street and Saxony Drive around 11:30 p.m. Friday -- regarding multiple calls of shots fired.
"My daughter called me and she was so scared -- saying she heard shots," said Ervin.
Ervin was not home, but stayed on the phone with her daughter for hours.
"I just told her to hit the floor and go get her sister," said Ervin.
When police arrived at the scene, they found 37-year-old James Norris with a gunshot wound. He was taken to Wheaton Franciscan Emergency Room where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Co-workers at Super Steaks & Lemonade said Norris leaves behind a family and children.
"For somebody just trying to make a living, it's just not fair," said Ervin.
