TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)-- A Tallahassee neighborhood is on edge Wednesday following an early afternoon shooting.
Around 3 p.m. Wednesday afternoon officers with the Tallahassee Police Department responded to the Plantation at Pine Lakes Apartment Homes off of Halstead Boulevard, where a man was reported lying in the community's parking lot suffering from a gun shot wound.
"The initial investigation by forensic and criminal investigation has led us to believe that there was an altercation that took place near the mailboxes between two men at some point one of the males was shot," said Officer David Northway with the Tallahassee Police Department.
Despite the shooting, most residents describe the neighborhood as fairly safe on a regular basis.
Mary Leffler said, "I've always enjoyed living here and I always will. I feel it's very safe. I enjoy my neighbors we enjoy each other and I've always felt like this was a community where I didn't have to worry."
A community meeting is being arranged for later this week to help reassure resident's of the complex's safety and to keep them up to date with new developments.
