Nancy Kjersgard, of Wakefield and John Stelmach, of Malden, were both eyewitnesses to the shooting. Stelmach picked up his son, Matthew, from preschool immediately after the shooting.
"I mean, I got two kids who stay with their grandparents a lot of the time . . . just five houses down from that house," said Stemach, of the home on Wyeth Street where a suspect allegedly fled.
