Terrace Heights Shooting Doesn't Shock Neighbors

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash - There are about a dozen houses on Observation Drive in Terrace Heights.  Neighbors say they all know each other and can recognize every car that goes down the street.  They had suspicions of what went on at the end of the street.  House 202, where the deadly shooting happened Thursday.   

"I don't really feel shocked by it, we kind of expected it, that's a sad statement isn't it?" asked Dennis Salts, who was lived across the street for two years.

The probable cause document says the three suspects who came by were there to buy drugs.  When Luis Acevedo, the man responsible for the house saw one of the suspects, Marcus Bradford, with a gun, Acevedo shot Bradford in the head.

"Myself and other neighbors I've talked to have been pretty much waiting for that shoe to drop, I mean we didn't know exactly what was going on over there, we knew it wasn't a church service," explained Salts.

Salts moved to Terrace Heights two years ago because he never heard of any major crimes happening in the area.

"I hope that the results will be that the house will have somebody in it who deserves to live in a nice house and in a good neighborhood," said Salts.
