On a normally quiet, well-kept block in Valley Stream, police on Long Island spent hours Monday night piecing together a murder.

A man was gunned down on the sidewalk on Charles Street. Neighbor Howard Campbell heard the whole thing.

"I heard two gunshots. A few moments after that a car came screaming down past my house. Then, I heard someone screaming, down where I'd heard the shots," Campbell said.

That car wound up a few blocks away on Linden Blvd. in Elmont where it wound up crashing into another car.

What is not clear is whether the second car was involved in the crime.

Police escorted a young child from it, into a waiting ambulance.

They also appeared to place at least one man under arrest.

"It's a very troubling situation to be hearing gunshots in your neighborhood," Campbell said.
