The victim was shot in the back yard of a home. Police believe the victim had no right to be on the property and did not know the resident who fired the shots.

The resident called 9-1-1 and claims to have shot in self-defense.

People who live nearby say this is the last thing they expected to happen in their quiet neighborhood.

“You’re talking nine in the morning, in broad daylight,” says Stacy Hawkins. “This is an upscale neighborhood. It proves it can happen anywhere. It’s kind of scary. It definitely makes you think.”

The incident has prompted many residents to question their own safety, and the protective measures they have in place at their homes.
