“I was in the kitchen feeding my dogs and I heard four to five shots. I have friends of mine in that corner shop, so I thought, you know, somebody told me they were being shot there, so I ran over there saw the guys on the ground,” added Joe Hernandez.

Apparently the shooting happened across the street from that bodega. NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell was among those who responded on the scene.
