    "We did hear three loud bangs while we were watching TV, and then I asked, 'Are those gunshots?'" said neighbor Gloria Lydia Longoria. "So we came out and we saw the suspect running away."

    When police arrived, they found a man and a woman, shot, on the grass in front of the home. Both people were taken to the hospital. Both were expected to survive, police said.
