All Amy Lewis can do is sit on the curb and mourn the loss of her fiancee, Terrell Allen, 38, who was shot and killed Monday at 11 p.m. at Mulberry and Pine in Galesburg.
"We was gonna buy a house and it would be the first thing we accomplished, just in life," said Lewis.
While police won't say why this might have happened, Lewis knows one thing- she's going to have a tough time without Allen by her side.
"We get drive-by's, stabbings, we get all kinds of things," said David Cole, a neighbor. "It's rough over here."
Neighbors say it's typical to see a drug deal near here, but a fatal shooting has them all talking and wondering why.
"It's a shame that we have to have such violence," said Crystal Williams. "It's close to the school, the school bus drops off right over here."
As for solving her fiancee's murder, Lewis isn't putting too much faith in local law enforcement.
"They're gonna do the same thing they've been doing- nothing. People have been getting killed for years in Galesburg and there's no outcome to it."
Police haven't made any arrests. If you have any information, you're urged to contact Galesburg police.
