Neighbors thought the sounds were fireworks at first.

“I had no idea somebody had gotten hurt," a neighbor said,

Police say witnesses were taken from the scene and were interviewed by homicide investigators.

Neighbors say police are often called to the Cove.

A search of a one mile radius of the crime scene on MPD’s CyberWatch showed one aggravated assault has happened so far this year and four more have happened in the last two months.

Other neighbors say they slept through Monday morning’s events, while others said it was the scariest night of their life.
