People living in the small, neighborhood say their community isn't known for crime.

"This is a good neighborhood to live in. We've been living here five years. No problems. nothing like this has ever happened, but things do happen.  Reporter: What do you know about the location over there?  That used to be a place where things went on at, but they came and closed it down. What happened beyond there is a mystery," says Sammy Washington, a nearby resident.
