    I was actually, sadly, cleaning the snow off my car right off 6th on Sterling while this all unfolded. don’t think he was actually shot on 6th. I would have heard a gunshot for sure. There was a man who suddenly showed up screaming, perhaps to the crossing guard a cop car pulled up, then an ambulance. Could have sworn they cuffed him. Weird for a Thursday morning? Yup. Gunshot? Think I would have ran for cover had I heard that.
