“I believe the messaging has been that they believe the murder was targeted so it wasn’t something their neighbors need to be concerned with but it doesn’t matter.. you’re still concerned when there is a murder in your neighborhood,” said a neighbor.

There were reports of a white car that had been seen in the neighborhood rapidly leaving the scene after the shooting.
