Police are investigating a deadly shooting early Thursday morning in Washington County.
Authorities said 23-year-old Rensfield Jarvis, of New York, was found shot to death on Ewing Street around 12:30 a.m.
Investigators said Jarvis suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was dead by time officials arrived at the scene.
According to police, Jarvis was at nearby Pickles Bar before the shooting and was shot after he left the bar alone.
“There was surveillance footage from inside the bar that we reviewed and there were no issues inside the bar,” Washington police Lt. Dan Stanek said.
Residents who live near the bar told Channel 11’s Dave Bondy that they were worried for their own safety.
"All of a sudden I heard bam, bam, bam and all you could see is the rain of fire shooting out of the gun. The poor boy's body was blown away. It was the sickest thing I've ever seen," witness Michelle Powell said.
Tracy Huffman said she heard three or four gunshots, but didn’t know what had happened.
“I thought it was fireworks, and then 15 minutes later my boyfriend called and said there was a dead body,” Huffman said.
Officers said Jarvis moved to the city of Washington about two months ago and was living with extended family.
“You don’t want to see anyone get shot. It’s just a shame because people don’t care about life. They took his life into their hands like it was nothing. It’s ridiculous,” neighbor Robert Fields said.
Police have not identified any suspects and said they are still interviewing witnesses. Officials said they don't believe Jarvis was involved in any problems inside the bar.
