Apartment residents demand more security after 6 people are shot

- Police are still looking for the two suspects behind a mass shooting at the Haverstock Hills Apartment complex.

On Tuesday, at this same complex, the community rallied together, with Quanell X also speaking, calling for better security at the apartments, which has a history of violence.

Residents are demanding more security, including surveillance cameras, more armed guards, and working gates.

This comes after a shooting left two men dead and four others injured after an argument between the victims and another resident Sunday evening.

Police believe the two men responsible for the murders are 28-year-old Jeremy Jones and 34-year-old Harvey Jones, who has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Jeremy Jones has been charged with multiple capital murder for the deaths of Chris Beatty and Gary Rusher. Among the other four injured is Brandy Rusher, an America's Next Top Model finalist, her brother Isaiah, brother in law Arthur Larkin and a 16-year-old girl.

Now the apartment property management has released a statement saying:

Equality Community Housing is saddened by this tragic incident. We extend our deepest condolences to the victims and their loved ones. This senseless act negatively impacts Haverstock Hills and our community at large. We have made great strides with reducing crime in our community. We remain committed to our continued efforts to apply all best practices in detouring crime, and work closely with law-enforcement to support their efforts. Being that the two suspects charged with this crime were not residents of our complex, this is a call for greater, more collaborative civic action including Harverstock Hills residents, local community leaders as well as city officials. We will continue to take active steps to help the community recover from this unnecessary violence and sustain a safer environment.
