Neighbors said the area is quiet.

“Friendly. It feels safe. There’s a lot of families with kids,” said Orion Lumiere, who has lived around the area for several years. “It doesn’t feel like the kind of place there would be a carjacking.”

Police say Connolly saw a teenager in the middle of the street as he was driving, and…
