Records said that Delray Duncan, the man accused of shooting Patterson, lived at the apartment complex and was previously arrested for allegedly pistolwhipping and robbing a man there.

Less than two years ago, Channel 9 reported on a 10-year-old shooting and killing her neighbor there.

The child’s mother, Lakrisha Isaac, handed the girl a backpack with a gun inside after Isaac and the victim had an argument.

Three years ago, five people were shot there, including a 5-year-old.
