Off 16 and Van Buren neighbors are shocked by what happened last night.
Normally it's a quiet neighborhood where parents walk up and down the sidewalks with their kids.
Off 16th and Van Buren that was not the case Tuesday night.
80 year old Margarita Salazar lives just feet from where the standoff happened.
She was lying in her bed at time.
"We knew him for a long time, and seeing that commotion it was very sad for all us."
Angelica Vera was in the street when the shooting went down
"They threw stink bombs, that got poor neighbors who where trying to see what was going. they broke in after breaking all the glass."
Both Salazar and Vera knew Ricardo Moreno as a good man.
"Very nice gentleman, kept to himself, just there."
But after what neighbors saw last night in their quiet neighborhood, they are going to be more aware of their surroundings.
