EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -
It was a busy weekend for Evansville police who investigated several calls of shots being fired in neighborhoods.
Police responded to two different reports of shots fired in the southeast side, and one was on South Morton Avenue where residents say children should feel safe.
Police have responded to 392 calls related to gun fire since the first of the year. Police say numbers are on the rise because there's more activity during the hot summer months, and the majority of the gun fire is in the southeast side.
Pam Wilson says she's used to having some trouble in her neighborhood on South Morton Avenue, which is why she has surveillance cameras on both sides of her house. She didn't hesitate to make a 911 call early Sunday morning.
"But all I heard was gun shots. I dropped to the floor," the call said.
The gun shots hit three of her cars, the bullets traveling clear through a car and shattering several windows of an SUV.
Wilson says cars can be fixed, but she's in disbelief that people are so reckless.
"Then be able to get out and start shooting and not care about people living, it's very frustrating. I'm angry. I'm very angry at that, very angry," Wilson said.
Police responded to another shots fired call at the corner of Jackson Avenue and Garvin Street on Sunday evening. One mother says she tried to remain calm for her young son.
"What I would describe as automatic weapon and that lasted for quite a few seconds. Then there were single bangs. My son comes running with his friends that were at my house and they're saying, "Mom, that's gunshots,'" the concerned mother said.
Evansville police say they respond to hundreds of shots fired calls each year and very few of those reports involve an actual injury. But residents say bullets don't have eyes and an unintended target could be one their children.
"I feel like that it isn't going to be the people that are shooting at each other that are going to get hurt or killed. It's going to be those of us that are concerned about our neighborhood and families that are going to get hurt or killed," the concerned resident said.
Officials are asking if you have any information related to either of these most recent incidents, call police or use the anonymous tip line at 1-800-78-CRIME.
