"We heard four shots and I told my kids to get down -- I have two daughters -- to get down," Johnson said. "After that everything was gone. We looked outside and saw cops outside."

"I just saw him yesterday," a girl in the neighborhood told Liebman. "Why did he have to die? He was having alot of fun,"
