Neighbor Ryan Hedberg told ABC News’ Chicago station WLS that he heard two gunshots after coming home to the normally “quiet” neighborhood.

“Came home from dropping off my kids, hanging out inside, heard two gunshots; there was apparently more, but it’s what we heard sitting inside,” Hedberg said. “It’s kind of weird being over here, it’s usually quiet.”
