At about 5:15 p.m., police were keeping pedestrians and reporters several hundred yards from the scene, which was located near a small public park.

A couple who had been speaking with police at the scene declined to comment as they left the area, while pushing a child in a stroller.

A teenager who lives near the scene, who did not want his name printed, said, ““That street’s trouble. ... Kids around here [are] roaming around the streets and stuff and causing trouble.”

His mother, who declined to give her name to a reporter, echoed her son’s comments about Michigan Avenue.

“I know that’s a bad street,” she said.
