I just don’t want any involvement in anything. I live here. I walk down that alley and now I don’t even want to walk down that alley anymore,” said a woman who didn’t want to be identified, fearing the violence. “Well, it’s just disturbing because Galt was great 10 years ago and crime has gone up literally in just the past six months. It’s ridiculous.”
Investigators believe they interviewed nearly everyone involved but they didn’t release a motive and they haven’t made any arrests. They’re urging anyone who hasn’t come forward out of fear to report any information anonymously.MORE NEWS: 'AMEND Changed My Life': Program For African American Students Offers Path To Success
