It really scares me.” Hale was described as a “normal, nice person, maybe a little quiet” by another neighbour named Sean. “There’s nothing that would have led me to believe that she was capable of such a thing or that she or anyone in that family would have access to, much less ever use, a gun,” he continued. They don’t seem like the family that would be around guns, just like that.”
