FOX6 News talked to people near the shooting scene -- about the horror.
"My immediate thought was it sounded like one of the floor fixtures in Macy’s hitting the marble floor. Kind of that sharp sound. But it was so loud and I think that’s because we were so close to it let it in that same second I knew right away with a gunshot," said Jill Wooley of Elkhorn.
Again, the conditions of the seven adults and one teenager injured in the shooting has not been released.
