Investigators say they believe someone broke into the Hicks’ home overnight and fired the fatal shots. They are still investigating any possible motives.
Neighbors claimed that they were unaware of the incident until they saw police and crime tape.
Neighbor Riley Gasaway said, “It’s insane. This is a very nice neighborhood and never have police in here and helicopters flying. It’s very crazy.” Another neighbor Hannah Mabrey confirmed that “They were just really sweet people, so I just can’t imagine who did this to them. It’s terrible.”
