Residents at Apartment Complex Shaken After Chase/Deadly Shooting

Posted: Updated:

Residents in Montlimar apartments are still shaken up.

"It was like 10 15 seconds," said Kim Purnell.

Purnell lives in the front and says the shootout between the chase suspect and police came to a quick end.

"I heard two shots and that's what made me get down on the ground, and then two or three seconds later it was a lot of rounds. Maybe 20 or 30 something like that," he said.

Purnell says this is just the latest in a string of crime plaguing the area. Early Tuesday morning the body of a fisherman, named Gary House, was found at a Moore Creek that flows nearby. One resident who didn't want to show her face says she's lived in the complex for over 10 year, but won't be for long.

"Everybody's frightened about it. Everybody's talked about what is happening here," she said.

She says the up tick in crime began a few months ago and she's currently looking for another place to live.

"8 or 9 months ago. All of a sudden we've had people here selling drugs, and just a lot of troublesome things happening," she said.

District attorney Ashley Rich says it's too soon to link this chase suspect and homicide investigation of the fisherman, but it's also too early to rule anything out.
