CBS 58 spoke to one neighbor who said they heard four or five shots and called police.

A different neighbor, referred to by her first name Lavone, says she feels unsafe.

"Now I'm scared for anybody's kid to be sitting out front playing," said Lavone.

She went to the store and arrived back right after the incident happened. She says the block was taped off by police.

"Police were everywhere and I had seen the delivery truck," said Lavone.

The delivery driver was parked on the same side of the road as an apartment complex on Green St. It is unclear whether the building is where he was making the delivery.

A property manager at the apartments says they've been taking steps to keep the block safe. She says they have banned teens from loitering in the yard and buildings.

"Last night when we did our rounds ... no one, none of the kids, teens, nothing was out," said Shaqueta Streeter.

Streeter does not believe anyone from the complex shot the delivery driver.

A group of kids and teens that live in the complex put together a memorial for the delivery driver. They did not know the man.
