Police tape blocked off Onax Drive on Monday afternoon as officers continued their investigation and interviewed neighbors. The neighborhood was quiet. Several neighbors who were interviewed said they had heard no gunshots and that they had no idea what had happened or who was involved.

No arrests have been made, and authorities released no other information about a suspect or a motive in the shooting.
