Carly Bragg, who was in the city for the New Year’s Eve festivities, remarked that it “was horrifying.” “Super-near fireworks were what it sounded like. It was inexplicably timed. The incident occurred when we were walking close to the location.
In a hallway that was “maybe 15 to 20 feet away from the sound,” according to Carly Bragg, she and her companions took cover. When they realized how close they were, they saw the window of Urban Emporium shoot out.
An owner of a shop on South Royal Street told FOX10 News that New Year’s Eve revelers flocked to her establishment to seek safety following the alleged gunfire.
