— At an apartment at Lincoln Heights in Henderson, the storm door glass is shattered. The woman who lives there is staying with her mother at another apartment.

She didn't want to give her name, but said that her 20-year-old boyfriend, Zechariah Alexander, was visiting on Monday when, around 9 or 10 p.m., there were several knocks at the door.

The woman said when Alexander answered, she heard two shots and saw him fall to the ground. She saw two men, and they used a shotgun. The pellets sprayed her arm, requiring a brief hospital stay.

The woman said she doesn't know why Alexander was shot. She just wants those responsible caught.
