Neighbors who live in the 2600 block of S.W. 67th Street told News 9 the family who was targeted Monday afternoon had not lived in their home very long and kept to themselves.
That was why it was such a shock for the next door neighbor when the homeowner came over begging for help.
"And she was screaming and yelling and hollering," said Chuck Morris. He said he and his wife have lived in the neighborhood for more than 20 years and had just returned from a weekend trip in Dallas when that frantic neighbor ran right into their garage.
"I said, ‘Is somebody in trouble? And she said, ‘Yes I need to use the phone,'" said Morris. "So I just picked up my cell phone and called 911 and handed it to her."
Morris said it wasn't until later that he learned that woman had been beat up and that her son had been shot and killed. Police identified the son as 20-year-old Abraham Frayre.
Within minutes police swarmed the area, looking for two black males who reportedly took off in a newer model tan sedan.
But why they targeted the house was unclear.
Neighbors feared it may have been drug-related. They said this part of the Hilcrest Heights addition is secluded and quiet and that neighbors here usually watch out for one another.
Most of them have lived here for at least two decades.
So Monday night's shooting was definitely out of the norm.
But Morris said he's not worried, and he's definitely not moving.
And police said if you have any information about this case you are urged to call the homicide tip line at (405) 297-1200.
