Scott Cavener, a plumber, was in the front office of the complex to do some work when he heard the gunshots.

“Well, the maintenance man over his radio said, over his two-way said, ‘Call the police. There’s been a shooting.’ So, then I got with the maintenance man. We walked outside, walked around, saw the guy laying on the ground,” Cavener said.

Cavener said the victim may have been related to someone moving in.

“Somebody in the office was signing a lease for an apartment and said it was her brother. Apparently, he was here to view her apartment that she was leasing,” he said.

Authorities identified the victim as 25-year-old Timothy Niedo.
