The children’s parents were reportedly socializing at another location at the time of the incident.
Police said they’re trying to figure out whether anything was stolen from the home in order to piece together a motive for the shooting. They’re actively investigating and haven’t released any sort of identification of the suspect or suspects.
A neighbor told WGCL-TV the family at the home was generally friendly to others in the neighborhood and to each other. He said he sometimes saw the kids outside playing basketball and would generally exchange pleasantries with them.
When he hears the people who shot two of his neighbors’ children to death is still out there, he just thinks of his own family.
The neighbor said the family has lived in the home for 2-3 months.
