The footsteps of investigators, a dark crime scene, and a the body of a young man being hauled off on a stretcher; they are images that Terri Scott says will stay with her.
Scott adds, "It makes me want to pack up and move today."
Early morning sirens drew attention to a little home on O'Rear Street.
Nathan Hartwig, with the Chattanooga Police Department, says, "Witnesses had called police and said they heard gunshots and that's when we dispatched to the residence here."
That is where they found a man in his mid to late 20's shot to death.
Hartwig adds, "We were also told that there were possibly two black male suspects that were seen running away from the house headed west bound through the yards."
Police believe the victim was just visiting the residence when the shooting happened.
Scott says, "I had saw him in the last two days, coming back and forth, and I didn't know who he was."
A man who did not want to talk on camera says he actually dropped the victim off at the house just three hours before the deadly shooting.
Hartwig adds, "We're still working on the motives of what exactly happened, and why he was shot, but we do believe that he was targeted by the suspect, and it was a random shooting."
But that does not make these residents feel any better, they say, because shootings and robberies have become common place.
Scott says she heard almost a half a dozen gunshots in just the last 48 hours.
Scott adds, "It's like people don't care about human life, and they don't know the impact it has on families, on communities."
It is pure concern, says Scott, concern that is growing every day.
No suspects are in custody, and the name of the victim has not been released.
