“Nobody heard anything. No one heard a gunshot or anything," neighbor Richard Thomas tells us. “I hear gunshots all the time. Weekly. Weekly, I hear gunshots from that way. I think they’re just shooting in the air. But nobody's ever getting shot. Now somebody got shot over here.”

Neighbor Shawn Christian adds: “As I was coming out the door, the police came in rushing me like, ‘What's going on? You stay here?’ and I'm like, ‘Yeah, I'll stay here,’ and he was like, ‘Did you hear any gunshots? Did you see any strange people running around your house this morning?’”
