That changed Saturday night when residents like Randy Butler got a knock on their door from police.
"Told us to stay in the house and not come out," said Butler.
The warning came as police were involved in a standoff with attorney Todd Hansrote.
Police received a call the attorney was threatening to kill himself or his wife.
After hours of failed negotiations Saturday, police heard shots inside the home.
Police say an officer killed Hansrote when the father of three walked outside and started shooting.
"Sad for the family actually," said neighbor Doug Overdeer. "The wife the kids the family. Everybody will be fine they're the ones impacted the most."
Authorities aren't elaborating what lead to it all but this isn't the first sign of trouble in the home.
Last July police responded to a similar call.
Police reports from that incident say Hansrote suspected his wife of cheating and threatened suicide.
Authorities went to the home and found shots had been fired but no one was there.
No charges were ever filed in the incident as officers eventually determined none of the parties involved were in any danger.
There's no word yet what role if any that scare may have played in the one Saturday night.

Arrest made in fatal shooting in Memphis
May 23, 2013 19:55 GMT
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Memphis police have arrested a man accused of fatally shooting one man and wounding another.
The Commercial Appeal (http://bit.ly/188G97s ) reports that 21-year-old Setric Hall has been charged with second-degree murder, aggravated assault, attempted second-degree murder and using a firearm during a felony.
He's being held in the Shelby County Jail.
Police say the shootings occurred Wednesday night. Officers found a 26-year-old man on the floor with a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead there, and later identified as Devin Cox.
A few minutes later, officers responded to another location, where they found a 22-year-old man with a gunshot wound. He was taken to the Regional Medical Center at Memphis.
Police believe that Hall was trying to shoot his girlfriend when the 22-year-old man intervened.
The girlfriend was not injured.
