RS FAN: What I have gathered from neighbors who were out when it happened was that there was a dispute at a house (a few neighbors suspect to be a drug house due to suspicious activity we all have seen….but didn’t want to be to snoopy.) There was a Sargent a couple blocks away and chased and captured one car. However a neighbor said she saw multiple people scatter from the area. The victim just ran to fast fuel but was actually shot in the alleyway.
