The incident left eight people dead and at least a dozen more injured.

Groban being nearby immediately took to his social media accounts to recall the terrifying incident. The singer said, “Oh my god, I just heard gun shots with my dog. Downtown F***. I hope everyone is ok. Was a half block from me, I didn’t see but heard 18 to 19 quick rounds fired off. Be safe with your kids out there.” He also tweeted “I’m shaking, that’s the corner I was supposed to have my coffee on, but my dog pulled me a half block away 10 minutes before shooting.”  Groban also expressed his condolences to the victims and their families. He said “Sirens and Trick or Treaters out everywhere.
