Some neighbors told News 12 that they were concerned about violence in the area.
Public Information Officer with the Chattanooga Police Department says, “There’s no rhyme or reason for when these types of incidents happen. In summertime, there’s no telling when things might pop off. Our investigators are just now beginning to unpack this and get into the circumstances surrounding it. So, I can’t give you any information as to why now, what led up to that or if this is necessarily a common thing.”
CPD is still investigating this incident.
