Ryan Holmes, a groundskeeper says it all happened very quickly.
“I was in the office with my manager she was interviewing someone for a job here. We heard a noise. I thought it was actually a piece of machinery that we actually don’t even have in there. I was looking around trying to figure out what it was. We saw out the window a bunch of people running around. I saw a guy with a gun I briefly saw someone fall over.”
Holmes works as a groundsman at the apartment complex where the shooting happened. He says after hearing 7 gunshots, he was the one who made the call to police.
