“It’s scary, especially when it happens right across the street from you,” resident Terese Gibbens told Global News. “It makes it better that it wasn’t random, that they’re not shooting someone off the streets. I’m just shocked when you wake up and see police in your front yard.”
Insp. Don Colemen said Mojica was known to police, but didn’t offer any further details at a press conference Friday.
