State Police detectives assigned to Blodgett’s office are investigating. No arrests had been made by Sunday evening, Monahan said.

At the bustling Royal Park Garden apartment complex late Sunday afternoon, there was no sign of the early-morning shooting. Young families live in many of the apartments, and children played soccer and rode their bikes while their parents watched from balconies.

Several residents said they were not aware of the shooting until they woke up Sunday morning and found State Police detectives talking to neighbors for information about the shooting.

Residents said a man, his girlfriend, and her young daughter lived in the apartment where the shootings took place. All three had left by the morning, according to their neighbors.

The shooting took residents by surprise, with some saying the apartments were generally safe and that they could not remember any other recent violent incidents there.
