One person tells us her daughter in law lives next door to where the suspect was hiding. She and several others were forced to quickly evacuate. She says she’s shaken up hearing a murder suspect was hiding steps away from her son and daughter in law’s apartment. @ABC30— Nathalie Granda (@NathalieABC30) June 5, 2019
