"When I heard about this incident, I thought about the last incident that happened on Thanksgiving," he said. "All this killing going on, killing your girlfriend or your wife. It's not worth it. It's not worth it. Just walk away."

Other neighbors spoke to the similarities of the killing last month in which police said Wright shot his girlfriend after she tried to break up with him.

"Here it goes again. That's the first thing come to mind," said one neighbor who didn't want to be identified. "We hearing so much, you know, we don't know if it's just somebody firing in the air or there's somebody really hurt."

Channel 4 crime and safety analyst Ken Jefferson talked about the role police play in these domestic violence cases, particularly if the victim is afraid of being attacked again.

"They'll recommend that you might want to get out of this spot in the event the person returns or in the event of future violence coming back to your house, but the decision is totally left up to the victim at that time," Jefferson said. "They can't force them. They can't make them, but they will make references to where help is available, where they should go or could go if they wanted to, but they never ever twist the arm of the individual to make them go to that spot."
