Jeff Cravotta was out grabbing lunch when he noticed the commotion.
“I got on my bike to go get lunch and I saw a bunch of police cars and then I saw an officer putting up crime scene tape. While I was eating my lunch, I looked at the car, a white car with blood all over it, and I was like, oh my gosh, I live around the corner, so this is a little rattling,” says Cravotta.
