It’s a horrible day.
I feel sad for all the people,” said resident Lisa McLean.
Neighbour Robert Bussi said he was walking down Main when he heard three shots.
“We came outside to see what was going on, and I heard four shots.
I’m just glad that no one else got hurt, because it’s a very busy street,” he said.
