VIRGINIA BEACH-- Some Lake Edward residents in Virginia Beach say they are concerned about illegal activity happening in their neighborhood.
Residents tell 13News Now many of the street lights in the 5800 block of W. Hastings have been out for about a week.
They say having no street lights helps lure and attract illegal activity.
"It's getting worse and worse," one resident said. "Ever since the guy got killed right here, it's just been getting worse."
Some say they see gambling and drugs outside there homes and many mornings they wake up to find the streets littered with beer and alcohol cans.
"I just never thought the neighborhood would go down like that," a resident said.
