"Call 911. I'm dying."
Those are the words a man shouted across a parking lot on French Street on Wednesday afternoon.
A Masonic lodge, the Lancaster County Clemson Extension office, the Lancaster County Economic Development office, Discovery School and houses surround the parking lot.
A witness, who asked not to be named, said she thought she heard a car backfire.
"Then it went boom, boom, boom, boom, boom and I said, 'That's not a car,' " the woman said.
