News 9 spoke with neighbors that said this is normally a very nice neighborhood.

“Yeah, it’s very quiet around here. There’s never been any issues with anything like this happening. I’ve been here about a year and a half so it’s really a quiet neighborhood,” said neighbor James LeForce.

Lt. Ron Strecker of the Midwest City Police Dept. added, “I mean this is, as far as this address, this location, when the call came out I was kind of shocked to hear this address. It’s a good neighborhood? Yeah.”

Police said they have not made any arrests and they don’t have a suspect description.
