Initial investigation showed that the two were acquaintances and had an altercation.

News 25 spoke with residents of the complex who say they were left shaken after this morning’s shooting.  Resident Donnell Redmond said, “It’s the first time, I mean, I have never heard of anything happening like this. I know it is a very quiet neighborhood and it is a good community so it’s a shock. We have young kids around here. We don’t need this. I mean it happens, but I just hope and pray it doesn’t happen here no more.”

No charges or arrests have been made and this investigation is still ongoing.
