David Overholser, who was identified in 2007 as the husband of the deceased in public documents, is listed as the only officer and organizer of the business, according to the database.
“Little or no inventory will be kept on site,” according to the company’s articles of organization, which were filed with Tennant’s office in September 2011.
The principal office of Center Mass Arms previously was located at 72 Lusitano Ave., south of Martinsburg, and appears to have been changed in May, according to a business organization database maintained by Tennant’s office. In 2007, David and Tiffany Overholser resided at a Rubens Circle address in Martinsburg, according to Berkeley County records. Games-Neely said the deceased was originally from Florida.
The shooting was alarming to neighbors who indicated they didn’t know the deceased that well and didn’t believe she resided there for very long.
“This is a really quiet neighborhood,” said Rena Voron.
Another woman who said she only had recently moved to the neighborhood, indicated she saw the woman walk a young girl to the school bus stop at South Georgia Avenue and West Martin Street on a regular basis and had spoken to her in passing.
“We were terrified,” the woman said of the early morning gunfire, which she described sounding as if someone was knocking loudly “boom, boom, boom” on her door.
“I honestly felt very safe here until that.”
Games-Neely said she was unaware that a firearms business was possibly being operated from the residence.
“That’s an ATF issue,” Games-Neely said of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ oversight of such businesses.
