All the commotion in the Draper neighborhood, including helicopters and swarms of police, had a lot of people freaked out.
"I heard the helicopters since 6:30 this morning," said Nabby Hazar, Draper resident.
"It makes you like almost get the chills almost ya know," said Logan Hudson, Draper resident.
"It's a little nerve racking if you think someone is in your neighborhood especially after something as violent as this act is," said Greg Christiansen, Draper resident.
Many members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the area say they got texts like this one stating "all church meetings had been cancelled today due to an officer being shot in the area, (with the) suspect still on the loose." Ryan Herzog tells Reporter Brian Carlson that he lives right next to where the Draper police officer was shot. He actually heard the gun go off.
"At first I thought a car back fired but it didn't sound like that it actually sounded like a hand gun," said Ryan Herzog, Draper resident.
When Herzog went outside he saw the other victims who were hit.
"The female was leaning up against the street sign, the male was laying down, I thought he was already dead at that time," said Herzog.
As police responded, and streets were shut down, people in the neighborhood say the area turned into a ghost town.
"Very militarized zone, you don't dare go out, make sure all the doors are locked," said Dan Northrup, Draper resident.
For others hearing about the shooting and seeing the heavy police presence left them in a state of shock.
"Just scary to feel like you're not safe," said Hazar.
"We don't normally have things like this happen, so ya it's nerve racking," said Christiansen.
