(KMOV.com) -  Many residents of the Canfield Green apartments have told News 4 access to where they live has been limited since protests began in Ferguson.

Michael Brown, Jr was shot outside the apartment complex August 9. Authorities have set up barricades, meaning residents and visitors have to make their way to the apartment complex on foot. A barricade was put up by police Monday.

“We gotta go on a road trip just to come home,” resident Shaquilla Jones said. “It not fair to us, I’ve got an 8-month-old son.”

People who live in the apartments have said people other than memorial visitors and residents are coming to the complex. Everyday life, she says, has been impacted.

“Won’t let us in. Then my neighbor said she couldn’t get in with her ID. She tried to show police that she stays here. What are we supposed to do?” Jones said.

Another resident said there a few who are not from the area that are up to no good.

“You’ve got a couple of bad people who don’t even live around here that’s coming over here and making it bad for everyone,” Anthony Johnson said.

Johnson said he is concerned about what would happen if emergency services are needed at the complex.
