A fight escalates into a shooting at the Gramercy Park Apartment Complex in Champaign earlier Monday night.

 One neighbor who witnessed the shooting says he was grazed by a bullet on his hand, as you can see in our video.
        
He tells our sister station ABC Newschannel 15 that he saw the entire thing unfold and dropped to the ground when he heard shots.

Police tell us they were called to the scene at south Country Fair Drive and White Street around 7:30 for a fight. Once they got there, they found out it was much more than they had thought.
