A car were with at least two people inside opened fire on five young men. Emily Owens was inside her apartment when the shots sounded. "We heard a bunch of shots, like eight shots, and we all ducked and ran into the hallway," Owens said. Three men were wounded. One man managed to get inside a van trying to get away. A mother with two young children were . The van managed to get as far as Bancroft before it was stopped by police. Resident Todd Walker says the shooting is the result of too much time and too many guns. "We got to find out where these guns are coming from and get these guns off the street," Walker said.
