Police responded to the complex around 2:45 p.m. Saturday.

"The last thing that someone heard him say was, 'don't leave me I love you' and now he's laid out," says Deja Brown, who was home at the time of the shooting. She says this is the second time this week, there's been a shooting. Apartment management sent a text, Wednesday, alerting people of a shooting.

"I stepped outside and heard one loud shot and it rang my ears," says Brown about Wednesdays shooting.

Confidence Okpoko says he was next door to the man doing the shooting.

He says, "he was talking about his baby mama, you know, screaming, I just left him alone."

He thinks both shootings are related.

"I'm thinking it might be the same guy, I'm hoping it's not, it's crazy," says Okpoko.

Police haven't tied the two shootings together. They're interviewing witnesses and reviewing surveillance video.
