Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) Residents from the Sonya Quarters neighborhood in Alexandria are dealing with the loss of an Alexandria man this week.

A murder has left residents from the Sonya Quarters neighborhood upset.

"It is crazy. It is like people change over from how they were back then to how it is now. The environment has changed a whole lot. Everything that is going on now was not like this at all," said Fannie Lawson.

"It is just ridiculous we should be able to get along instead of trying to kill up one another because it is a new generation," said Alicia Jefferson.

Twenty eight year old Demarcus Green was killed in a shooting that occurred on Wednesday.

Friends of Demarcus Green say they were saddened by the news of his death.

"That was a heart breaker, it really was, and the sad thing about it though is that he was cool, he was real cool, he never messed with nobody, he was always to himself. You know but that is just how life is. That is how life goes," said Fannie Lawson.

"It still hurts me. I sat and cried with my momma last night because I still can not believe that he is gone it is like a shock," said Alicia Jefferson.

Sonya Quarters residents we spoke with say something must be done to help stop the violence.

"At the end of the day, what I look forward to is for the community to get together and make peace. Because people are dying everyday and tomorrow is not promised to nobody," said Alicia Jefferson.

"You would never want to see a loved one or your friend or any family member get hurt in front of you. You would never want to see that. You know, it be the saddest thing. You know what I am saying it is like something people will not be able to handle," said Fannie Lawson.

The Alexandria Police Department has arrested and charged seven teen year old Isaiah Anthony with the murder of Demarcus Green.
