Mr. Morris and Ms. Freeman were inside their apartment and heard a light tap at the front door.  Morris looked through the peep hole, did not see anyone, and opened the door.  At that time a whistle and a shot were heard. 

As she fled the apartment, Freeman saw an unknown male dressed all in black and wearing a black mask.  Freeman then jumped to a second floor stairwell landing and then to the ground to escape.  She later realized she had been shot.  Morris retreated into the apartment where he was followed by the suspect.  The suspect then shot Morris and fled the scene.
