Officers remained on scene as the sun rose hours later Monday morning -- where many neighbors were still in shock.

"First we heard the gunshots and my kids jumped up, ran into our room, then we heard car speed off," said Anthony Brewer.

Brewer lives in the Washington Community. Just several houses down from where shots were fired Sunday night.

He said his first concern are his three children.

"There's a daycare right here," Brewer said.

Nelson Robinson also lives a few houses down from the scene of Sunday's shooting. He said the shots sounded extremely close.

"Had my wife get on the floor. Then we waited it out,’Robinson said.

Other neighbors met in the streets hugging and crying, saying the violence needs to stop.
