Marjorie, a neighborhood resident who did not want her last name used, said, “I’m sitting in the house and I have everything locked. ... I’m nervous, of course." She said she often takes her daily walk around Babcock Village and called the neighborhood “very quiet.”
“I’m waiting to hear that the person has been found. I will feel better then,” she said.
Jacquelyn Smith, the parish administrator at Christ Episcopal Church, said around 12:30 p.m. that the church, which is 3 to 4 minutes away from Babcock Village, was on lockdown.
“There’s so much anxiety,” she said. " Since we are so close-knit and a lot of our pastoral care is for Babcock Village, we are anxious for our parishioners."
Babcock Village is an apartment complex that houses low-income elderly people, Smith said.
“Westerly is a really close-knit community,” she said. “Since we’re an ocean community, we have a lot of vacationers who have summer homes.”
When the vacationers leave for the winter, Smith said, the population shrinks, and the remaining Westerly residents are “like a family.”
When news of the shooting broke, she said, everyone jumped on their phones and alerted those in the community. Because the church does safe church training, they imposed a lockdown as soon as the schools locked down, she said.
