GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- Neighbors told NewsWatch 12 that there are a lot of kids that live in the apartment building where the deadly shooting took place. 

We talked to a few neighbors that told me that they have never heard of something like this happening at Harbeck Village Apartments.

Tom Vinson lives ther with his three kids and told us that he has always felt safe in his neighborhood and has never heard of any conflict.

"Everybody looks out for each others kids here, everyone gets along. There's never any bickering or arguments between one tenant to another. Everybody gets along and they watch out for each others kids real well," says Tom.

The complex has a park and a basketball court and a lot of porches had toys and bikes on them.

Tom says that after the shooting, he will make sure his kids play closer to his apartment so he can keep a better eye on them.

Multiple neighbors expressed concern about the safety of neighborhood kids.
