At least one man who was wearing a mask exited the vehicle, pointed a gun and demanded property.
The neighbor threw what items he had on the ground and began running. Carrington began running in the opposite direction.
The gunman gave chase and shot Carrington multiple times. He then got back in the vehicle, which fled north on Summerfield Avenue and turned west on Todd Road.MORE NEWS: Winter Storm Expected To Be 'Coast Hugger,' But I-95 Corridor Will See Snow
