“I heard some ‘pow-pows,’ like some gunshots,” one witness said. “I saw some of the boys running up towards the train station to, like, run away from the area. Like I said, it was very quick, very subtle. There wasn’t a lot of commotion. It was fast.”

Police said it’s still not clear why the men were arguing, adding two suspects did flee the scene.
