A shooting in Evansville leaves a house littered with bullet holes, and Saturday night, police are still on the look-out for those responsible.

Two residents of that home in the 500 block of Adams Avenue tell 14 News they had just gotten home shortly after 10:00 p.m. and were confronted by strangers.

The two men say they were standing on the front porch of their home when a truck pulled up and started shooting. They hid behind a pillar before they were able to reach the front door and go inside.

"I guess the people here living in this area just don't get the picture, take it for granted and now you have bullets flying by," said Steven Kince. 

Kince lives down the street from that house that is now littered with what the men say was more than 10 shots. His wife called him last night when she heard the gunshots.

"She was hysterical," Kince recalled. "She was saying 'Hey, we're on the floor laying down, they shot the house up on the corner.'"

Neighbors say it's not uncommon to see all kinds of activity on that very corner.

"The intersection of Adams and Garvin is pretty busy," said Kince. "It never ceases to amaze me what you find, I feel like a lot of times I come out and feel like I'm at the zoo"

The victim's girlfriend was in the living room when bullets came through the windows, but all three were not injured. Bullets struck the walls and TV inside the home.

Several neighbors are afraid of retaliation.

"The Evansville Police Department really needs to step up their efforts in this community," Kince said.

There are no suspects yet in the case, if you have any information you are being asked to call police.
