Police are investigating a shooting that happened at 1848 Garfield street around 11:30 a.m. Thursday. A canine unit and police officers with their guns drawn are sights no one wants to see in their neighborhood. Police say it all started as an attempted robbery, but quickly escalated into a shooting. Jo Kelly lives across the street.
"I do have dogs, I walk my dogs, it's beginning to be a little scary just being out on the street," said Kelly.
Police say two men, armed with a gun and bat, made their way to an apartment, kicked down the door and demanded money. They say the victims refused, then one man was shot in the stomach. From there, the suspects took off.
"The suspects were last seen running westbound from the building. They jumped into a waiting vehicle described as a dark blue, four-door sedan," said Office Katie Flood.
The 28-year-old victim was rushed to the hospital with what officers call serious, but non-life threatening injuries. We also hear two small children were at the home at the time of the shooting.. Police think the suspects knew the victim and it wasn't random. Still, some neighbors it has them thinking a little more about their surroundings.
"I'm beginning to think yes, I'll be walking in the light, no longer at 10:00 at night... So that I can see who is around me. Or if I see something suspicious, which I've already started doing, I'll just return home," said Kelly.
Five schools in the area were put on lockdown as police searched for the suspects. As this time, we do not have accurate descriptions.
