AUBURN, Ala. (WSFA) -- Authorities continue to search for a suspect in Saturday morning's fatal double shooting at an Auburn mobile home park.

One woman was injured and another woman died around 3:00am Saturday at the Webster Crossings mobile home park off of Webster Road. 

Authorities tell WSFA 12 News David LaTravis Pitt, 25, of Loachapoka, opened fire on the two young women.

The victim that died is identified as 22-year-old Asia Scott.

Residents nearby say it's something they never expected.

"She was just a kid, and to know that she lost her life--and you never know what for--it's just scary," said Heather Hudmon, who also lives at Webster Crossings.

The crime also has neighbors worried for the safety of their families.

"Gunfire is pretty scary.  It's not going to be stopped by a trailer wall," Hudmon explained.

Authorities say the second victim, Cierra Marshaye Cobb, 20, is listed in stable condition at East Alabama Medical Center. Investigators are confident Cobb will recover.

Still, the cloudy details of the crime--and the ongoing manhunt--rattles the community.

"It's scary to know that things happen in real life at all like that--much less, that close," Hudmon said.

The murder is Auburn's first of 2009. A motive was not immediately known.

If you have any information that could aid authorities in their search for David LaTravis Pitt, you're asked to call the Auburn Police Department at (334) 501-3140 or the anonymous tip line at (334) 501-7337.
