Neighbors in the area said they were surprised to see crime scene tape up in their normally quiet neighborhood.

“To see it go off in your front yard is a little unsettling,” said Tristin Corrales. He came home to see the police cars and investigators outside his building.

Patricia Goodman said she knows the neighborhood to be safe, but seeing something like this leaves her on edge.

“I heard something, some commotion and I went out on the balcony because I live right there and I saw them on I guess its a gurney wheeling a man out that they were using the airbag on,” said Goodman, “I’m scared. I have a five and an eight-year-old and I live three doors down from this so that’s very scary.”
