Shelia Dixon witnessed one of the arrests at the complex Friday night.

"When I came outside, I saw the laws [police] and they were right here in this apartment 27," Dixon said, "They were there for a while and I don't really know what was going on, I just happened to come outside and see them standing down there at the apartment." confirmed that police did arrest two people near the Coronado Village Apartments on Friday night, but police still aren't sure if these suspects are related to the incident.
