PASCO, WA – An overnight fatal officer involved shooting stirred a Pasco neighborhood. The people who live there say this isn't the way things used to be in the Tri-Cities.

"It's a very quiet neighborhood. There are a lot of people that have lived here for many years. It's just a nice quiet place," said Kathy Brown who lives across the street from where a man was shot and killed by officers. It’s normally a quiet neighborhood, just not this Tuesday. "This morning my husband woke up to the sounds of several gun shots."

Family friends tell NBC Right Now that 34-year-old Brad David Jensen had a troubled past and an extensive criminal record. He comes from a good family they say. His father Chris Jensen served on the Pasco City Council for a number of years and even held position as Mayor pro tem. He was also appointed to the Hanford REACH National Monument Committee back in 2001.

"My heart goes out to the families." Not just the Jensen's who actually lived in the neighborhood for years but have since moved. She sends her thoughts to the officers' families as well. Brown says she respects the work they do to clean up the area, but admits crime is on the rise.

Brown thinks her neighbors on the same block trying to sell their homes could be in for some trouble. "If someone were to be driving through the neighborhood looking for homes this definitely would have an impact I think."

It's an impact the entire Tri-Cities is feeling. This is the third officer involved shooting just this year in the Tri-Cities. Brown says it's sad but it's becoming more and more common to wake up and see police tape strewn across your lawn.

"This isn't the Tri-Cities that I grew up in."

It's believed Jensen no longer lived in the neighborhood but was staying with someone he knew. An autopsy and toxicology report will show whether or not any substances were in his system at the time. As for the officers, they have been placed on administrative leave while a special investigations unit composed of Richland and Kennewick officers sorts through the investigation.

    The Interior Department is rolling back its plan to increase fees at 17 of the nation's most popular parks.  An interior official says the department is amending the plan following major backlash from the public.  The admission hike would have more than doubled fees during the peak summer season, forcing visitors to pay $70 a car. No word yet on exactly how the rates are being revised. >>
