Eyewitnesses told police they heard gunshots late Wednesday night. So now, police are hoping those eyewitnesses, as well as nearby cameras, will provide vital leads.
“We did find some cameras in the area,” Chief Inspector Scott Small said. “Homicide detectives, crime scene personnel are processing the scene, hopefully, family members and witnesses inside the property can help identify exactly what happened, and hopefully these cameras recorded something.”
Police have not yet released the victim’s identity. They say he was a 58-year-old man who lived at that location with his family.
