Neighbors tell News 25 these types of violent acts are hitting too close to home. Neighbor Carmel Martin said, “Yea, it’s right close to home. It’s right close to us, know what I’m saying? I got grandbabies in here. I got my kids. It’s scary. It’s got my nerves bad. I don’t think I can do this much longer. It’s just sad. Thank God because we thought they was coming up in here. We don’t need none of that.”
