Neighbors say Keith street is a peaceful place.
One woman even told us she often sees children running and playing in the middle of the road without worry.
But one suspect has turned residents TM feelings of serenity into fear when he allegedly shot his ex-girlfriend five times on Friday.
According to police, 25-year-old Victor Manuel Hernandez had been stalking 21-year-old Jessica Reyes for quite some time. He showed up to her home on 223 Keith Street in Brownsville where Hernandez allegedly opened fire on the young woman.
Neighbors say the incident was horrifying to witness. But despite this event, they hope their neighborhood can soon find peace once again.
Hernandez is still at large, if you have any information you are asked to contact Brownsville Police as soon as possible. The victim, Jessica Reyes, is hospitalized and in stable condition.
