Jenny Guzman who lives nearby said she called 911.

“It sounded like, we thought it was a car crash at first, a loud bang . . . then I ran to the front and I see the neighbors arguing outside and (I) say to him, ‘There’s something going on over there.’ And that’s when I picked up the phone and called 911,″ she said.

No other details about the incident were immediately released.
