Police say they were at a house on Chickadee Court Thursday night with a third man. They left the house and were shot just around the corner on Grouse Lane. A neighbor named Barbara who didn't want to be on camera told us what she heard and saw.

"I heard three shots, and then it stopped, and I heard one and then it paused again and I heard three more and I hit the floor," Barbara said.

She told us after the shooting stopped she heard a vehicle, possibly a truck speed away. Then she went outside and saw the victims.

"There was one on my fence, so right there, by my backyard, that one he was on his back and the one that was in the street he was just face down."

They say Perry and the two victims were conducting a drug transaction in this neighborhood before everything went wrong.

The victims again, Brennen Fairhead and Scott Gaffney, both 21, longtime friends. Fairhead graduated from Clovis West in 2015. Gaffney attended Clovis schools through 2014.
