Just a few blocks away another drive-by happened in the 600 block of South Bendix Street where police said an unknown suspect fired multiple rounds at a home.

One mom who lives in the neighborhood said she was giving her little kids a bath when she heard gunshots outside.

Cristina Hernandez said, “The violence needs to stop in this neighborhood because it’s not the first time. I’m a mother of three and it needs to stop period.”

Several neighbors believe the shootings are gang related

Gary Weese said, “I don’t know exactly the reason for it but we’ve heard that it is gang related but I don’t know that for a fact. I’m not really sure who’s doing it.”
