Police said the investigation is in the early stages, and there’s no suspect description, which has neighbors feeling uneasy.
“When we bought this place it was a really nice area and stuff, and now it’s getting really scary,” said neighbor Cari Godfrey.
That change came to Godfrey’s door.
“My husband and I were asleep, and the police came and knocked on our door around 12:45 a.m. and asked us if we heard or seen anything,” Godfrey said.

“No one knows anything. We just heard about it,” said neighbor Charlamar Eisom.
Eisom doesn’t know if the man lived in the complex.
“I’m concerned now. To be honest I’ll be looking for somewhere else to move. It’s changing in this area so it’s scary,” said Eisom.
Godfrey didn’t know the man either, but seeing a crime scene outside her door makes her emotional.
“I don’t mean to sound religious, but God gave us the life to live and make it good for everybody,” said Godfrey.MORE NEWS: 2 Seriously Hurt In Rural Weld County Crash That Involved 5 Vehicles
