Apartment Complex Issues ID Cards After Shooting Death

About a week after a three-year-old girl was shot and killed on a playground, her apartment complex is taking steps to secure the community.

Police say 29-year-old Derrick Best shot three-year-old Princess King on the playground during an fight with another man. Best is still on the run.

The managers of the Grand at Day Point in Goldsboro have started issuing photo IDs to everyone who lives there. That will make it easier for police to spot outsiders. Residents say.. these security measures are long over-due.

"This place needs to be cleaned up," said resident Litisha Hardy. "I live here and I pay rent. I want my kids to be able to come outside, my grandkids to be able to come outside and enjoy themselves where their grandma live at."

The apartment complex has also promised to install more security cameras.
