Rolling Hills Residents Feel Unsafe After Saturday Shooting

Residents living at Rolling Hills say they are afraid after Saturday morning's shooting in their apartment complex. Many residents are feeling unsafe in their own homes.

Charlie Thornton has been living in Rolling Hills Apartment complex since February 1992. In the past 15 years, he has seen his neighborhood get worse and worse.

“A lot going on around that corner cause they’re walking and riding all night every night,” said Charlie.

Charlie was at home Friday night/early Saturday when the shooting happened in a building behind Charlie's, which killed 30-year-old Pete Reaves, of Headland.

Monday, you could still see Reaves maroon Grand Marquis parked in his usual spot.

Charlie says he's taking measures to protect himself in this neighborhood. “I went on and got a pistol cause these young boys can't be trusted,” he said.

Other Rolling Hills residents who wouldn't go on camera echoed Charlie’s feelings.

They say there's a lot of traffic in and out, day and night, so they just stay inside their home.

Dothan Police had blocked off the subdivision questioning residents about the murder.

Residents say they hope officials will continue to patrol their neighborhood.

Dothan Police say they plan to step up patrols in the neighborhood looking for suspicious behavior.
