I was on my porch in South Bound Brook, right across from the canal over looking the train station. I heard what sounded like 4 or 5 "pops" which to me sounded like firecrackers. I realized something was fishy when I saw about 5 or 6 guys running from where I heard the sounds. I didnt have a great view because it is a bit of a distance. There were also another two people I saw on the canal trail who heard what I did and observed as the people were running from the scene. It became apparent something bad had happened when about 10 minutes later cops and ambulances were on the scene, then came the search helicopter.
