County’s first incident
Local resident Phyllis Williams said she was shocked to learn that a shooting took place in the Clinton neighborhood where she lives. She described Clinton as a “normally peaceful neighborhood.”
“It don’t seem real,” Williams said. “I met the mom to the young lady. She was very distraught. I just came out and gave them hugs. I said a prayer with them.”
According to reports, the PGPD concluded that the incident did not appear to be a “random” one. The investigators were working toward finding a possible suspect as well as a motive.
“Detectives of our Homicide Unit are investigating a fatal domestic-related incident that occurred at the 2500 block of Lazy Acres Road in Clinton,” a Twitter post from PGPD reads.
