WILKES-BARRE -- Police cars with lights flashing surrounded Sherman Hills, along Parkview Circle in Wilkes-Barre. Police say a man was shot in the torso just after 8 p.m. Sunday. He died at the scene. The killer is still on the loose.
The coroner identified the victim as Victor Grandy, 32, of Rockaway, New York.
Arthur Nolan lives there and heard it happen.
“I knew it was gunshots. You can always tell. You can always tell the kind of bang it is because we've gotten used to it by now,” Nolan said.
The seven-year Sherman Hills resident tells Newswatch 16 things got better after an ownership change in 2014 and a crime crackdown, but he feels everyone has gotten "complacent."
One resident said the key to Sherman Hills life is simple.
“If you mind your business and do what you do, you don't have to nothing to worry about,” said Iszhane Ford.
Key Jeffrey said it's all relative. He doesn't live at Sherman Hills, but he does live in this Wilkes-Barre neighborhood. He recently moved here from Brooklyn, New York.
“The neighborhood I come from is kind of rough. I'd say it's a walk in the park,” said Jeffrey.
Police say an argument led to the gunfire. They have not said what that argument was about.
There are several cameras along Empire Court, the street leading into Sherman Hills. Police have not said if those cameras captured images of the killer.
