    At least a dozen police cars surrounded the scene, and FOX13 crews observed a helicopter flying around the area where the shooting happened.

    The victim has not yet been identified. Investigators did not release any information regarding a suspected shooter.

    One Hyde Park resident who lives right behind Top Stop was inside her home when she heard gun shots.

    "We wasn't even in the house three minutes where I just heard a whole lot of shots," she said. "Pow, pow, pow, pow."

    In an effort to help, she ran toward the body lying motionless on the street. 

    "When I made it, it wasn't nothing I could do," she said. "When I tried to touch him, he wouldn't do anything."

    The shooting wasn't over, though. She said a group of men approached with guns preparing for retaliation. 

    She quickly attempted to leave the scene.

    "And before I can even make it across the street they start shooting, and I fell and hurt my hands and my wrist," she said.
