Harris said he awoke to sirens in the area just after 2 a.m. Sunday.
For the next nine hours, gunshots rang out in the neighborhood as authorities worked to have the situation resolve peacefully.
"The adrenaline rush of all this ... My hands are still shaking a little bit. I was just pacing around the house thinking, 'what is going to happen next,'" Harris said.
Another neighbor said the situation and gunfire were so intense that she could hear shrapnel hitting her house.
The situation ended at 11 a.m. Sunday when Devin Weiland, 21, was taken into custody.
All three of the shooting victims are expected to survive, which is nearly a best-case scenario considering the chaotic nature of the situation.
"It's usually pretty quiet around here, for the most part," Harris said. "It's almost surreal in a way."
