Neighbor heard fight before shooting

Posted: Updated:

Beaumont police say two gunmen kicked in the front door of a home in the 1500 block of Bean Courts Sunday morning.  Police say the men shot and killed two people at the house.

A neighbor who does not want to be identified heard something disturbing right before the shooting.

"The girl kept saying 'That's wrong, don't take that.' And the guy kept telling the girl to get back in the house," she said.

The neighbor says she also heard what sounded like a someone hitting another person.

And only minutes later the situation became more serious than she thought.

"About five minutes later we heard a series of gunshots. And there was a brief pause and a couple more gunshots," she said.

The woman says she saw a man running down a dirt road towards La Salle after hearing the gunshots. And she ran back into her home in fear that he was the shooter.

The woman says she moved to the neighborhood because she thought it was safe.

"This was really quiet, that's why we chose to move in here. there's no fighting, there's no people walking the street. it's safe," She said
