Manchester residents uneasy after 2 violent deaths during weekend

MANCHESTER - A memorial still sits outside Drynk nightclub in Manchester where Saturday morning's stabbing occurred.

Joel Martin is being transported back to New Hampshire where he will be arraigned in court Tuesday morning.

On Lake Avenue, where a shooting occurred on Mother’s Day, police have claimed the shooter acted in self-defense.

People of the Queen City are still uneasy.

“It’s sad - it's just sad that I don’t feel comfortable in the city I live in,” Dolores Lees, a Manchester resident said. “I live right in the middle of what happened, and I don’t like that."

Two deaths, within two blocks of each other and those who work on Elm Street - in the middle of it all - said, they just want to get in and get out.

“I can pretty much can handle myself walking around the streets," said Krystal Martin, who works at the Radisson. "But during the day I feel pretty safe as of now.”

On Lake Ave, people said they adjust to what comes their way.

“If something happens to me and I can do something about it, I do,” said Henry Fellows who lives across from 144 Lake Ave.

But back on Elm Street people say they’ve seen too much violence for one weekend.

“I still didn’t see things like this happen as often," Lees said.

"It shouldn’t be happening as often.“
