Around 4 p.m., several law enforcement agencies and fire rescue vehicles were seen flooding the area.

They have since cleared the entire area and have ordered everyone, including vendors, to flee the area.

According to Keil, at least two women looked like they had been shot in the leg. Moments later, a man was seen on the floor in handcuffs.

It is unknown whether a suspect or suspects have been detained at this time. A number of fire rescue vehicles were seen driving throughout the neighborhood.

Footage from a live helicopter camera showed a black man being arrested and taken away inside a police cruiser.

This remains an active scene.
