“I heard, like, tapping and it sounded to me that it was the popping of the gun,” said neighbor Brian Wade.
He was halfway asleep when he started hearing a commotion in the apartment above his Sunday night on North First Street.
Then came the bullets. Wade’s roommate was under the stairs leading upstairs at the time.
“When everything started flying he run for the kitchen and hid in there,” Wade said.
Then he checked to make sure Wade was OK.
“I jumped up and I was like, “I wouldn’t get by that wall, you know, it might start again,’” Wade said.
His apartment has bullet holes, wood splinters on furniture, and picture frames damaged.
“There’s holes there,” Wade said. “They must have been shooting ... I don’t know, down the steps.”
Another neighbor, Charles Wilson, said people are still shaken.
“It’s just, a little too close for comfort, you know? It’s a little scary,” he said.
Miamisburg school officials said counselors will be available for students when they return Jan. 7.
