One resident tells News 25 the area of last night’s shooting is not known for violence. Gwen White lives in the neighborhood. She said, “Only thing I’ve seen was a lot of police around here. They were everywhere. They say someone got shot, but I don’t know because I was not here. I didn’t hear no gunshots or nothing. I know this has never happened in our area before.”
The investigation is ongoing. No one has been charged yet in the shooting.
