Though it must've been a terrifying situation, Kitzenberg, a 26-year-old graduate of Breck High School, live-tweeted the drama as it unfolded.

[jump] In an interview with the Star Tribune around 7:30 this morning that had to be cut short as police stormed a neighboring house, Kitzenberg said he had just turned off the Minnesota Wild game shortly after midnight when "I heard gunshots. I peeked through the window and saw two shooters between two cars."

Kitzenberg ended up having to flee his apartment. When he returned home, there were bullet holes in his wall and in a chair.

Here's the timeline of what he was able to document with the help of his camera phone:
