The Rainswood Industrial Center is busy; vehicles come and go frequently. Some in the area wonder how someone could be shot and no one hear anything.

Greg Prather, the owner of another automotive shop, said, "It's always quiet back here that's why it's so shocking. You know, nothing like this every happened before."

A young woman who identified herself as the victim's daughter said investigators told her very little.

Meanwhile, there is fear among those who work in the industrial park.

"It's disturbing. It makes you think, you know, security wise a little bit more," Prather added.
