Alysa Alicea says she's lived in the neighborhood for over three years and this incident is a first for her.

"We've never really ever seen anything like this, it's really quiet, my kids play outside," added Alicea. "It was a shock, there were cops everywhere, so it was kind of scary," she said.

Rosario says when police arrived to the scene, he stepped outside and quickly realized that the man who was shot, was a familiar face.

"He seemed like a nice guy, he'd come by here and buy things he'd come and go a lot, good guy," said Juan Rosario.
