But one witness believe someone was injured.

"Just happened all out of sudden. Pow, pow, pow, pow . And I jumped up out the chair. You know I thought I was hit. And I looked over, a young lady was picking one up off the ground. He had got hit in the leg," Johnnie Lawrence, who witnesses the shooting, said.

Officers started following a car possibly involved in the shooting.
