The condo complex on Hudson is off of the main street. Residents who walk their dogs there are reconsidering going out at night.

“I definitely won’t be walking here alone or taking the dog out even in the day,” another resident said. “I can’t believe someone was shot right there.”

“It’s really scary. You want to think this area is safe,” she also said.
