CBS3’s Howard Monroe spoke to neighbors about the incident.
“I was laying in bed and I heard all the arguing and I’m like ‘oh my goodness, who is arguing?’ Because it doesn’t happen around here. Everyone is usually quiet and I just listened for a while and I heard boom boom boom. Oh my gosh, that was gunshots. I ran downstairs. I was ready to tell her to get down on the ground. I don’t know where these are coming from,” neighbor Stephanie Gardner said.
The DA says this was an isolated incident and there is not a threat to the public.
An investigation is ongoing.
