It’s believed the killing occurred after a violent argument involving her partner, although as of Sunday evening police had not yet named a suspect.

Neighbors said Gregg, who had lived in the block for about six years, could often be heard arguing loudly with her boyfriend, with both parties raising their voices.

‘I could hear them fighting, both of them yelling. They fight a lot. You can hear it pretty clear,’ said one neighbor the New York Post. ‘I’m not sure how often they fought but it was a lot.’

On Sunday, neighbors remained in shock after hearing about the incident.

Johanna Hidalgo, a resident living in the same block said she was shocked and noted how kind and polite Gregg’s daughters werem whom she would regularly encounter.
