He took to Twitter to give an account of the incident. Groban was walking his dog when the attack took place. He first wrote, "Oh my god I just heard gun shots and ran with my dog. Downtown. F**k."

He followed it up with "I hope everyone's ok. Was half a block from me, didn't see it but heard 8-10 quick rounds fired off. Be safe with your kids out there."
