Renee Thompson owns the house right where the crime scene unfolded. “It was pop pop pop pop pop. Then, it was quiet from there on. So, eventually, I kinda snuck out to see kinda what was going on. Kinda at that point they were doing chest compressions, the ambulance was here, and it wasn’t long after that he was taken,” said Thompson.
The suspect was taken to the hospital but their condition is not known at this time.
