Parents dropping off their children at a daycare across the way found a portion of their parking lot had turned into a crime scene overnight.

“Very alarming this is very quiet this is a very quiet area,” said Terese Ciofani, co-owner of the Nurturing Nook.

Staff from the hospital were also concerned.
