Markie Rose said she was picking her four children up from the school bus stop near the Third Evangelical Lutheran Church on Hillen Road around 3 p.m. when they heard multiple gunshots ring out. The five of them quickly ran, she said.

“That’s sad, shooting babies,” Rose said when she learned one of the victims was 15.

Later in the afternoon, she watched police examine evidence in the middle of the 1800 block of East 29th Street while her children played on the sidewalk outside the police tape.

“I need to lie down and smoke a cigarette,” Rose said as she left to buy snacks for the kids.
