“Someone just got out of the car, said they were still in the car and the lady was screaming, trying to get people to come over and try to get the cops. But someone just stole the car, but they resuscitated the person who was still in the car,” Gordon said.

“It was pretty awful, you heard the sound, it was a huge bang. I was open minded here at Dunkin’ Donuts. It’s just a big bang and you thought someone came through the windshield because you saw it was broken,” he explained.

The deceased was later suspected identified as Elijah J. Treadwell from Uptown.
