Several neighbors called to report hearing shots fired in the area of 1st Ave. and 6th St. Sunday around 8:20 p.m.
Witnesses told police they saw at least two males driving in a car, and the front passenger fired shots at a group of people who were walking.
The group, who may have been shot, then ran away.
News 11 spoke with several neighbors, who said they hear gunshots so often in their neighborhood, that they and their children already know to duck down to the ground to avoid being shot.
Although neighbors did not want to speak on camera, they told News 11 that they know this drive-by was gang related because they believe a certain group of people in that area were the targets.
News 11 also spoke with another man who is new to the neighborhood, and he said he now feels a little nervous.
"I just better watch myself. I just got to be more careful--just kind of watch your back more often," Bobby Patterson said.
Another local resident told News 11 he heard seven shots. He said police found seven bullet casings on the ground near the intersection.
According to police, the suspects' car is described as a silver or white four-door sedan, late 80s or early 90s model, possibly a Mitsubishi Lancer with an unknown license plate.
Police said the suspects' car fled the area west on 6th St. and sped off north on 4th Ave.
The possible victims were last seen running southbound in an alleyway nearby.
Police do not know whether there were injuries because the victims were not located.
The investigation is ongoing, and police have not yet confirmed whether the drive-by was gang related.
