According to police, officers were responding to a pedestrian who was hit by a car on a street nearby. Officers heard shots fired on Anson Street, according to police.

Police said the shooting unfolded right in front of these officers, who drew their weapons but did not fire.

Officers responded and found the first victim suffering from a chest gunshot wound.
