Neighbors says they heard a gunshot that morning
A Rossville couple who live near the house where the slaying occurred say they heard a gunshot earlier that day.
Robin Borders and her husband David live on Gordon Street. Their house is diagonal to house where the fatal shooting occurred.
The couple said they heard a gunshot about 8 a.m. that day. They called police, who searched the area but did not find the source of the shot.
The couple said they routinely hear a loud ruckus of activity in the area at night and into the early morning hours.
Later that day, at the time of the murder, the couple heard one --- possibly two --gunshots, Robin said.
Robin said they heard a woman screaming and went outside, where they found a red-haired woman bent over a man laying on the ground and unresponsive.
Robin said she called Walker County 911, as well as an older woman from the victim’s residence.
Robin said she and her husband did not see the shooter or the shooting.
She said the redhaired woman told her she knew who the shooter was and that he fled the scene.
Robin said the victim was not breathing and was bleeding from the ear. “It was awful,” Robin said.
