His grandmother, 71-year-old Betty Bledsoe, was also in the home but she managed to leave the room without any injuries. Neighbors say the family kept to themselves.

"He was just a cool dude. I didn't think he would do nothing like this," said Carry Williams. "This is just a quiet neighborhood, so it was surprising when I found out."
