Friday morning began with snipers, yellow tape, and sirens for an apartment complex along Raymond Road.
One man was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Another man was detained for questioning.
While the cause of the fight hasn’t been determined, some neighborhood watch members say things like this can taint a community.
“What any semi-intelligent person would see with the constant trauma our children get to see every day, when you have snipers in the corner, when you have constant police cars, when you have yellow tape each and every day, that’s the narrative of our young communities’ lives and it’s disgusting,” said Tutankhamun Assad.
Hanson said they did everything they could to make this standoff end as peacefully as possible.
“We’re doing the best we can with the resources that we have to make sure everyone, the totality of this whole situation is safe and it ends peacefully,” he said.
