The locksmiths on the scene of a deadly shooting in the Southport suburb of Greenville
The lockers at the scene in Greenville are full of locked doors and a woman who was injured when her vehicle was hit by a car.
The woman who lives at the home was hit when her car struck another car about 3.30pm.
“We just don’t know what happened, it’s very sad and we don’t want to know,” said resident and locksmith Mike Peebles.
The locksmith said there was a woman in her 30s, a man in his 20s and a girl in her 15s who were on the street.
“I’m pretty sure it was a collision with a car, and it’s probably been there for about a couple of days, so it could have been a short collision,” he said.
“The cars have to be able to open up, otherwise we can’t have any traffic at all.”
“They’re just locked up in a room.
We have to find a way to unlock them.
I know I’ve got some locksmith friends that do it all the time, but it’s tough.”
Mr Peeles said they were also having to deal with a man who was being questioned by police about a gun and a stolen car.
“He’s not at the door right now, he’s in custody,” he explained.
“It’s a very dark area, the police are not letting people through.
It’s just very stressful.”
You just hope they don’t kill anybody.
It might take some time for them to do that.
