|Assunto:||On the street vs In the street|
The daughters were found on the street with gunshot wounds.
The focus is on the street, in general.
"After they were shot Jason Sheats managed to run behind the couch and get them outside, Nehls said. Both daughters collapsed in the street."
The focus is that both daughters were able to run outside, while Mr. Jason tried to buy time running behind the couch to protect them and himself. Both collapsed right in the middle of the street. The IN was to add a ring of "in the middle of the street" to it.

I found other discussion that can back up this reasoning as well:
