"It's probably like, let's say 15 maybe a minimum of 12. It's all right by the door," said a witness who observed the crime scene.

The investigation shut down a large stretch of Central Ave from 52rd Street Ave to Estancia Dr. The homicide investigation made it difficult for people to get to businesses like Sharky's Fish & Shrimp, Golden Pride, Church's Chicken and hardware stores.
