Police Detectives actively working the shooting investigation that occurred at 204 Alpine Street on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, have uncovered additional factors surrounding the incident. Further investigation has revealed, the shooting happened as the result of possible drug activity or a narcotics transaction. Detectives have received very little cooperation from members who reside in the home and were at the residence the time the crime took place.
Additionally, further inquiry from a local hotel has produced a video of a vehicle of interest in this case. The video of the car is currently being released because it was very near the residence just before and after when the shooting happened.
Anyone having information about the incident or the vehicle in the video is urged to call 911 or the Police Department at 770-704-4883.
