‘Motor vehicle accident with injuries.
1710 Kingston s Road. Caller says that he heard six shots and then a car crash. (Inaudible) cars on fire.’
I walked up and it was the guy leaning over in the seat, just really blood.
It scared the crap out of me, neighbor Curtis Rodarmel said. I was trying to get his attention and see if he was alive.
Around two Saturday afternoon, police found 38-year-old Robert Knight in the driver’s seat of a white minivan, with several gunshot wounds.
He later died.
It s not something you really wanna see, at all. He was just laying over the seat.
Blood everywhere, crashed into my neighbor s truck and into the wall, Rodarmel said.
Police are now searching for a small blue or grey sedan believed to be involved in the crash.
They say it has a lot of damage to its front end but wouldn t go into detail about what role the crash, or the car s damaged, played in the shooting.
Police need help but some people are afraid to speak up.
If I did know anything or found out anything, Kay Vanhorn said. I would want to say what I knew but I would really think about it and I d be extremely cautious about it.
A cautiousness people say they ll have until the shooter is in handcuffs.
I feel very uncomfortable. I hope the person gets caught, Vanhorn said.
We spoke with Knight`s cousin earlier today.
She says the family is looking for answers in his death.
