Families of Lester victims continue to recover

Updated:

Memphis police swarmed the Goodwill Apartment complex in North Memphis where family members of one of the people murdered in the Lester Street massacre live. 

The sister of Cecil Dotson, who was murdered on Lester Street, was downtown talking with police when she got call from her apartment.

But no one was supposed to be in her apartment.

Friends of the Dotson family also said another call came from inside the apartment.

Police SWAT officers came back to the apartment and stood at the door with a shield apparently ready to break it down.

After about 15 minutes they left.

Hollis Seals, Shindri Roberson, Marissa Williams, and Dotson were all murdered in the house on Lester as well as two children.

Security is also tight at Lebonheur where three children in the house on Lester were severely injured.
