    Area resident Jose Martinez was one of the first people to come across the crime scene as he made his way into work.

    "I do see things happening. It's sad to see this happening in the city of Lawrence — the city that I grew up in and I love," said Martinez. "It's unfortunate that this is happening in the area I grew up in. It's sad."

    Other residents said the area has plenty of foot traffic during the daylight hours but when the sun goes down, the vibe changes.

    "At nighttime, it's a different story," said another man. "There's no one around over here. Few cameras, no lights. No one comes over here so this is like a perfect area to commit crime."

    So far, no arrests have been made.

    The investigation is being handled by the Essex District Attorney's Office, state police and Lawrence police.
