Moments after he heard a gunshot two women emerged from the house, one with blood on her leg who then collapsed between two vehicles.

The witness said the woman was clutching her leg as blood dripped over the pavement.

"It was crazy, it all happened so quickly," he said.

The woman's injury was not considered life-threatening, police said.
