Neighbors are reeling after an early-morning shooting left a woman dead on Morehead Avenue in Southeast Roanoke Sunday.
Many say the area is typically quiet and problem-free, and that this violence is upsetting.
Police are not releasing the victim’s name and say no arrests have been made yet.
Across-the-street neighbor Christina Henegar says she was sleeping at the time, but that she and her young son are still shocked at what they saw.
“I feel like there was a lack of respect for the victim…because her body should have been covered – or something put around her body – to keep little kids and other neighbors from seeing it, or possibly a relative or a friend from finding out from seeing her body laying on the ground,” she said.
