Virginia Beach gunman DeWayne Craddock was a longtime city engineer© WAVY Cassetty Howerin, who was the Virginia Beach shooting suspect's neighbor, says he kept to himself.

A neighbor of Craddock's told CNN affiliate WAVY that the gunman kept to himself and was always in and out of his apartment with a book bag.

Cassetty Howerin, 23, lived below Craddock and said he was awake during all hours of the night.

"You heard him walking around; he would drop stuff at like 2 a.m., and me and my roommate would try to figure out what he was doing," Howerin said.

His neighbors said they rarely saw him.

He didn't engage in much talk, Howerin said, adding "in the year I've been there, we've maybe had three conversations and that's about it."

"I know what gym he goes to. That's about it."

He would just go in and out, the neighbor said. By the time Howerin would wake up and leave at 7 a.m., he was gone.

"I never saw him take trash out, never saw him bring groceries in, never saw people coming in or out," the neighbor said. "He was very to himself."

Howerin said they are petrified. "I live right under him, so that could have easily been me or my girlfriend or my roommate," Howerin said.

Despite their few conversations, he "seemed like a nice guy," Howerin said. "He introduced himself when we first moved in. That's just crazy."

Craddock looked like a "jacked guy, he stood maybe 6 foot and he always carried a book bag with him. That's all I really know," Howerin said.

WEST PALM BEACH, FLA.—A Florida family who blamed tennis great Venus Williams for a fatal 2017 crash is now blaming government agencies for their loved one’s death.

The lawsuit comes six months after the Barsons settled a lawsuit they filed against Williams for an undisclosed amount. Since then, the longtime Palm Beach Gardens resident has sold her home in BallenIsles for $2.3 million, records show.
