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.
