Barbed wire, chains litter Ariel Castro's yard

Bicycles. Barbed wire. A chain.

Those are of just some of the items found in kidnapping suspect Ariel Castro's Cleveland yard, according to photographs taken over the weekend by a neighbor and obtained by CNN.

The neighbor asked not to be identified and said that he took the photographs because he wants people to know what's there.

The images show a cluttered yard.

A garage sits in the background, while basketball nets, a ladder and what looks to be a pile of debris rest in the foreground.

One of the photographs shows a thick spool of barbed wire; another shows a chain.

'I was five feet from the shooter'

Photographer Abdul Aziz witnessed the shooting at a New Orleans parade on Mother's Day, and he believes he was standing right next to the gunmen.

"I personally saw the muzzle flash from the gun and began to run towards the direction of a few of my friends that I saw. I also saw a number of individuals fall to the ground and immediately start to grab their wounds and call for help," he tells Anderson Cooper.

19 people were injured in the shooting at the second-line parade Sunday. Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas said that authorities have identified the suspect as 19-year-old Akein Scott. It's not clear yet if there was more than one shooter behind the gunfire.
