Neighbor Devan Watkins said that he and his wife would have never expected this to happen in their neighborhood.
“It hit a little too close to home,” he said. “Ultimately the neighborhood everybody here is amazing. It’s just one of those awful things that unfortunately happens. My wife and I bought our first home here and we just never expected anything like this to happen down in our neighborhood. Not once in my wildest dreams, I would never expect this”
