Security cameras captured the moment gunfire erupted.

"I heard a bang," said witness Greg Creagh. "Next thing I know, I hear another bang. A kid come around the corner, grabbed a pole and fell on the ground."

The shooting took place on a block of small businesses that includes a restaurant, a barber shop and a salon.

One of the bullets shattered a salon window. Another smashed a parked car.

"I heard four loud explosions," said Ron O'Clair, who lives above the shooting scene. "Under my window, 'boom, boom, boom, boom,' that's what I heard."

The man who was shot could be seen limping, then staggering toward other people.

"He was like, 'I just got shot, I just got shot,'" said Creagh. "He ran over, grabbed his bag, he said, 'Someone, call the police, I just got shot.'"

Beras is being held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing on July 29. It is unclear if he has an attorney.
