Mobile’s Fox News affiliate reports:
Two of Figures’ neighbors said they woke up to five or six shots around 5am Thursday morning. “At five o’clock that morning, I heard shots ring out and I laid there for a few seconds, but I didn’t know whether if I jumped up quick, that a bullet or something may come through the window. I looked out of all the windows to see if I could see anybody walking around or driving but I didn’t see nothing. Just heard the shots.” said one of Figures’ neighbors.
