A local news reporter interviewed some residents in the area. They stated the neighborhood has gone downhill in the past few years. One resident Theresa Hill who lives in Dutchtown is supportive of the driver saying “I’m glad the delivery driver was able to help himself. Everyone has that right...It just seems to be getting more and crazier. I mean I can lay in bed and hear gunshots going off. I’m afraid one day I’m going to be sitting there watching TV and end up dead.”
