Neighbors tell CBS 2 that a lot of people live in the house, and are frequently coming and going at all hours of the night.
Several people dressed in pajamas were ordered to put their hands over their heads outside the home where the shooting happened.
Neighbors said they weren’t surprised to hear about the shooting.
“We knew something was going to happen sooner or later,” Joellyn Listman said.
Neighbors say at least 10 people were living in the house, including children.
Police have been called to the home 10 times this year on a variety of disturbances.
“It’s been unusual people, is the nicest way I can say it,” Listman said.

At least one person was taken away in handcuffs, and police say they are questioning a person of interest.
Its unclear what led up to this shooting. CBS 2’s Charlie De Mar spoke to a couple off-camera who said they live in the home. They described the shooting as accidental.
