'The Sound Was Unbelievable': Witness Accounts Shooting in Broad Daylight
MANCHESTER — Manchester police are continuing to investigate a shooting on Silver Street that happened Thursday afternoon.
Cindy O'Rourke lives close to where the shooting happened and says she was inside her house when she heard shots being fired.
"I heard bang, bang, bang, bang," she recollected. O'Rourke says she opened the window to look outside and couldn't see down the street but then saw a silver sedan driving very fast down the road. She said the car was going so fast she couldn't catch the license plate number.
"The sound was unbelieveable," O'Rourke said. "I was very scared because I figured someone got shot."
She said a short time later the police showed up.
She said unfortunately the area is no stranger to occasional bursts of gunfire.
"I was really scared. I did not want to come outside because I did not want to get involved," O'Rourke said.
Manchester police say the area of Silver Street between Lincoln and Wilson streets is closed to through traffic.
