    I live here as well and have seen the apartments take a turn for the worse. There are more and more thugs there and they seem desperate to take whoever is willing to pay the bills rather than being concerned with residents’ safety.

      Not sure who or where this Beverly chick lives but what a fantasy world she lives in. CC is not only a dump but it is very unsafe. I only had one day to look for place to live and like many thought it would be ok. It’s been Aweful staff is very rude but safety is a major concern. Office staff has NO idea if suspects live here. This is not the first incident in these apartments. I’m out myself in 5 days and it’s not soon enough for me and my kids.

    • Julia holler

      Ur an idiot Beverly if you still feel safe here. What nonsense when someone gets shot and dies and you feel safe.

  • Not So Much

    You feel safe after someone just got shot there? Okay Beverly, good for you!!

    I too live there and feel nothing close to safe. Especially now. Our cars were recently broken in to and now this? But hey, on a totally separate note, I hear it’s going to be a great place to trick or treat! Bring your kids…..

  • Kbrown

    This place is horrible. I live here and my car has been broken into as well the rent is way over priced. Office management must have wrote the safe comment.

  • Amy Small

    I think it is important to note that these people did not live at Carrington Cove and I live here and feel safe. This started somewhere and ended at this community. I like my neighbors and hate that the media makes communities that are good look bad..

  • Rfg1

    Two weeks ago I wrote a review talking about this it was just a matter of time too bad specially for people with kids and that are are in high school and middle school that walk thru those areas to get home. Can’t wait to get out of here..

  • NF

    I live here and have kids. First people need to not listen to everything the media states. I was a witness to the situation and sadly it was something that happened at the wrong place wrong time. The person seemed to be meeting someone here and the conversation did not go well. I can state that the office did everything they could to protect the kids and the residents of the community. The office team has been at the scene all day so I don’t not think them writing reviews. I have faith in that this will be handled to the best interest of the kids, teens and adults. Unfortunately you cannot choose were crime takes place.

      4-5 suspects with the shooting of someone who was shot and killed. This place is unreal and it’s not safe…. Staff at office can not keep people from shooting someone but they can listen to current residents who have complained about safety before. If they took time out of their day to make this place more appealing we may not have issues like this. Good for staff for “being involved” when this happened. Maybe this will wake them up to clean up this place…

  • Carol

    I used to live in CC and I moved because of the rise of crime in the complex. They charge entirely too much and it’s not worth it. Safe? Isn’t this the second or third shooting in the past three months along with countless car break ins? Safe is NOT the word. My advice, MOVE!

  • Unsafe

    That’s that office again. This place is unsafe. Then they put the people involved don’t live here. How do they know the shooter didn’t live here. This is not the only incident in CC. THEY TRY AND BUTTER UP TO MOVE IN. I’m mad I just paid almost $1000 yesterday for rent. This rent should be $500. It’s horrible on top of the countless problems with the outdated apartments.

  • Rfg1

    “The person seemed to be meeting someone here and the conversation did not go well” Meeting here for?? For the Wednesday prayer? Please people!!

  • Danielle

    I used to live there as well.. Rent is very overpriced.. I loved the scenery and the feel of the complex but the staff was not very helpful.. Very rude and always had a bad tone when they talked to you… My car was not broken into but I am friends with a Madison county sheriff and he said that place is one of the highest for drug/narcotic stings and car break in. I only lived there for 6 months and within that 6 months someone was found dead in their car and someone was found dead in their apartment. I’m all for “crime can happen anywhere” but this is to much.. The reasoning for this is management either letting anyone move in or not controlling residents visitors and guests as they should.. It’s a big place and everything cannot be caught but you would think after SO much happening a better eye would be on the look out..

  • Anonymous

    A safe place? Come on people!! I have lived in CC for three months and I am absolutely disgusted with the place. While my boyfriend and I were out of town my apartment was lived in by a couple that I don’t even know for about three days. All the office had to say was “I am so sorry for the inconvenience, we will have our courtesy officers patrol more.” Has that happened? NO! And now all of this happened. I believe I will be moving to a gated community as soon as I can this is absolutely ridiculous.

  • Derpness

    I lived here for a few years, but really I’m glad I got out when I did. Overpriced rent as everyone else has said. Also the staff is fairly rude… I also got screwed on carpet cleaning and such when I moved out.

  • A resident

    I live here and was a witness to the shooting. I can tell you the office responded in less than a minute to the incident and were nothing but professional and helpful to everyone. Listen to the news, it was confirmed the people involved don’t live here. Unfortunately it is a very sad situation that happened to end here. You can’t guarantee your safety anywhere. Not at any point have i ever felt unsafe here. Instead of bashing this place and making comments about how much you don’t like your home, how about you pray for the young man who lost his life and his family. This could happen anywhere.

  • Heather

    I’ve lived here for several months and have nothing but good things to say about the community-in my experience. The staff through the management has helped us in ways that clearly go above and beyond…with severe health and other issues in both apartments we’ve lived in and much more. This is a tragedy…I still feel safe here but I would also take heed to the crime elements of car theft and shady characters that are mentioned. A friend of mine lives here as well and has mentioned not feeling comfortable around some of the people or “thugs” that live near her. Again-both buildings I’ve lived in two totally different areas/rent rates had respectable college students, families, regular people (no thugs yet), and retirees…sooooo.

    I live here and was witness to todays shooting. In less than a minute of the shooting management responded to the incident and Madison PD followed. The managment team that I saw was nothing but concerned, compasionate, helpful, and professional. They consoled residents, witnesses, and the victims’ family. I had to get my children off the bus at the office, and again they made sure every child had a parent present to go home with. Those that didn’t have a parent there, they took into the office. When my husband went in to get a package he said the office was packed with children still and they were singing songs, coloring, and feeding the them all snacks. If you read above or listen to the news, the people involved in today’s horrible incident were not resident of here. Not at any point of living here have I ever felt unsafe or expierenced all the negative things everyone has to say on here. At the end of the day, this type of situation could have happened anywhere. Unfortunately, it happened here. Instead of bashing the apartment complex and complaining about how much you hate where you live, you should be offering condolenses to the family involved. You should be praying for the mom and dad that I saw crying today, because they will have to bury their child something no parent should ever have to do. You should be praying for the young man that lost his life today. And before someone says “it is the office” NO I do not work in the office. I work on Redstone as a civilian contractor and thanks to our government, I had another day off!

    When my family moved to Huntsville in 1999, we moved to this apartment complex for just a couple of months (it was Flagstone at the time) while we were house hunting. During this time, my dad’s truck was stolen! And we saw a lot of unfavorable activity at night. Ever since, I’ve always steered clear of this neighborhood. It’s very shady. So sad this happened.

    I live here now and I was a witness to yesterday’s shooting. Unfortunately it was a tragic incident that resulted in a young man dying. If you read the article above and listen to the news you would know that all the people involved do not live here. It was situation that ultimately ended here and honestly this could have happened anywhere in Madison. In less 30 seconds of the gun shot office management was on the scene followed immediately by Madison PD. The management team that I saw was nothing but helpful, sympathetic, professional, and concerned through the entire day. I watched them console residents, witnesses, and the parents of the young man that was shot. They did a great job in securing the property and reassuring the residents. The management team that I saw escorted every child off the school buses protecting them from yesterday’s events. They made sure every child went home to a parent, and those whose parents were not there they feed, entertained, and even sang songs with. As far as bashing the community and complaining on here, everyone should be offering prayers and condolences to the family of the victim. A mother and father will be planning a funeral for thier child, something no parent should ever have to go through! A young man lost his life yesterday. At the end of the day regardless of what happened to lead up to the incident, nothing justifies what happened. I have never felt unsafe or scared of the place I like to call my home. Yesterday’s incident will not change that either!

  • Beverly

    Beverly here again. I have been a resident of Carrington Cove since 2007 and have never been staff. I’ve resided in 3 different buildings as my needs have changed. I have never had a problem with the staff and have seen some of them go above and beyond. As far as crime? When you find a place where it is not possible, let me know. As far as being killed? Don’t associate with the wrong people. This doesn’t appear to be a random shooting. You have to exercise common sense regardless of where you live. While this murder happened here, it does not define the area.

  • Nikita Alexis Jones

    I think if u dont know bradley then yall dont need to speak and as far as nsgativity his mom and dad lost their own son too two young punks who dont deserve to see daylight bradley was a good man and raised by an awesome woman and now because of some dumb disagreement has paid with his life leaving behind a son who will never now his daddy N a fiance that has a huge whole in her heart i say make them and the negativity needs too b turned into prayer for our family he gone and we cant get him back but these two are allowed too c another day i forgive them but i pray that ur dreams and every vision u see haunts u because noone deserves to die and especially not like that R.I.P BRADLEY A. HAYES WE LOVE U!!

    • Amanda Boles

      It is awful how people talk like that and never think about that person’s loved ones reading these comments and how it makes the family feel. Nikita you are absolutely right, my sister in law and brother in law are going through a tough time and to have to see all the people talking negatively hurts my heart. What if it was their son or brother or nephew or cousin. They wouldn’t want to read all these comments. These criminals should get life in prison. We need to make changes [people and as Huntsville and Madison citizens we should work together to stop all the violence. R.I.P Bradley Hayes WE love you nephew!! You will be greatly missed and never forgotten!!!!!

  • A Resident

    I am a resident here and was a witness to yesterday’s shooting. Yesterday a young man sadly lost his life. If you read the article above and listen to the news, you would know that all the people involved in the incident didn’t live here. This type of situation could have happened anywhere in Madison. Unfortunately it ended here, a place many people call home. The management team that I saw yesterday responded in less than a minute of the gunfire and were nothing but sympathetic, concerned, helpful, and professional throughout the entire day. Management consoled witnesses, residents, and the victim’s family. They immediately blocked all entrances into the commuity, and did a wonderful job of reassuring residents, addressing their concerns. The management team that I saw ensured every child that got off the buses from school and safely made it their parents. If a parent wasn’t present, they took the children in the office playing games with them, feeding them snacks, and singing fun songs until they had someone to go home to. Instead of bashing where you live, you should be offering prayers and condolenses to the family of the victim. A mother and father are planning their son’s funeral, something no parent should ever have to go through! A child will now grow up fatherless! Regardless of what lead up to the shooting, nothing justifies a young man losing his life! I have never felt unsafe here, and yesterday’s events don’t change a thing! Show some compassion!
