Harris was taken into custody at the scene.

Police have not disclosed a possible motive for the crime.

“I actually went to school with some of the people in the family that were involved. So it’s just really sad. It’s heartbreaking,” family friend Viveca Jones told WTVM. “More than anything, it makes me worry about my kids and stuff and because I grew up here and nothing like that ever happened.”
