Wendell Baker just moved into the neighborhood about three months ago. He hopes police catch the second suspect.

\"It's kind of scary because you never know how crazy and psycho some people can be now and days,\" Baker said. \"You never know, somebody can be walking down the street, a psycho or a felon hiding a gun.\"

\"So you're kind of scared because there are a lot of kids in the neighborhood,\" he said.
