Police showed up, guns drawn, serving a search warrant at the home of 51-year-old Pedro Hernandez in Maple Shade, New Jersey. A New York crime scene van removed items such as a computer hard drive while Hernandez’s wife and daughter watched. Neighbors say they’re still shaken.

(Neighbor) “It just scary knowing that I have children that, you know, grew up in this town and you just never know like people that live around you, and what could happen to your kids, you know, just go walking to school or walking to activities. I never let them out by themselves, but it’s still very scary.”

Hernandez remains under psychological evaluation in Bellevue Hospital and has not entered a plea in his case. The motive remains unclear.
