Jessie Brown, who works as a security at a store next door, said he was at work when he heard the barage of gunfire.

“I was at work and I heard the gunshots next door, so I went next door to go see what happened and then I see my friend, Loyce, on the ground,” Brown told FOX 32.

Brown said that he had known Wright for 20 years and that the pair both worked in security.

“He was a good friend, he loved doing security, I loved doing security and it’s just sad that this happened to him,” said Brown.
