“He was a good guy. I watched him grow up since seven or eight-years-old,” said Carl Piggie, Foote’s neighbor.
Piggie said he was shocked to see the scene following the shooting because he knew Demarco, a man who seemingly got along with everyone.
“I can’t explain why someone would want to do something like that to him. He didn’t bother nobody. He was good to everybody in the neighborhood,” Piggie said.
Investigators are still searching the home, looking for the killer.
Piggie told FOX13 it is time for a greater police presence in Raleigh.
“Until they do something over here like put a little substation, or something like this, this is going to continue to happen,” said Piggie.
