The Cornerstone apartment complex has a history of violence.

Just last week, three three people were arrested for a series of break-ins. 

Last August, a man was arrested at the complex after being accused of stabbing his father.

And in 2016, two children were rescued from an apartment in the complex during a SWAT standoff after their mother’s boyfriend was seen firing shots in the air and at a car, local media reported.
