A man is behind bars Thursday, charged in connection with an early morning shooting that killed a man on the west side of New Castle.
Isaiah Angry denied being involved in the deadly shooting as he was escorted into a police cruiser to be taken to his arraignment Thursday afternoon.
“Anything can happen at any time, so it’s scary,” a neighbor said.
Police responded to a home on N. Lee Avenue just before 8:30 a.m. Thursday. When they arrived, they found 32-year-old Todd Walker dead in the kitchen and other witnesses on the second floor.
“When I looked all the way out the window and I saw the crime scene, I was like, ‘Oh my goodness! Something really bad must have happened,’ but I never thought in a million years that…something like this would have happened,” the neighbor said.
Walker didn’t live at the house and police said Angry only stayed there occasionally.
Investigators said Angry took off out a side door after the shooting.
“Mr. Angry was located a short time later up in Union Township in a wooded area near Boston Avenue. He was coming from the woods, he was pretty muddy. The officer did take him into custody,” said New Castle Police Chief Robert Salem.
Angry is facing criminal homicide and other related charges.
Salem said he wasn’t talking to police.
Earlier in the day, uniformed officers could be seen searching the woods behind the home.
“We still are conducting a search for the weapon at this time,” Salem said.
Investigators are still trying to figure out a motive for the crime.
