"We've lost control of our town.
People are moving in here out of town landlords, we don't who's in them, and the next thing you know, there's 20 in there." said Plymouth Councilman Tom McTague
Leaders are calling for tighter control.
How that exactly happens, is unknown.
"We have a lot of absentee landlords....
Tenants that they have." said Mayor Dorothy Petrosky.
Messages of sympathy grow outside the first street apartment where Brad Swartwood, Nicholas Maldonado and Lisa Abaunza were fatally shot.
Daniel Maldonado is listed in critical condition at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center.
Prosecutors and state police saw a major crack in the case only hours after the shootings.
Mayor Dorothy Petrosky said that brought some closure.
"I think the citizens feel comfort knowing knwoing that we have suspects locked up, and maybe they'll sleep a little bit better." said Petrosky
Step brothers Shawn Hamilton and Sawud Davis are charged in the triple homicide.
Both declined requests from eyewitness news to be interviewed on Monday.
Before his arraignment, Hamilton told our I-Team's Joe Holden he was from Philadelphia..
What he was doing staying in Nanticoke and Plymouth...
Councilman Tom McTague calls it a giant wake up call.
"They're taking over the town, we're doing nothing about it."
Joe Holden will have more on this story on Eyewitness News.
