"She was a very friendly lady, very quiet, I don't understand what happened to her," a rattled Gerald Haynes, who lives just two doors down from Hale, told WAFB.

"We know that there is a shooter out there. We believe the shooter is watching the news,” said Baton Rouge police Sgt. L'Jean McKneely. “The shooter wants to know what we know and we're not going to give that information out."
