Residents in one westside neighborhood are on edge after shots rang out overnight. It was a drive-by shooting targeting a home with kids inside.

Luckily, no one was hurt, but on Thursday night those residents said they are frustrated with the violence playing out on their street.

Kiii News Reporter Bill Churchwell went Live from the 2400 block of Niagara, near Baldwin and Crosstown, where the shooting occurred just after 1 a.m.

When residents heard the loud pops of a gun going off. Bullets went flying, striking a home and a Jeep parked out front. A family including at least two young children were inside of that home.

Those residents said this is not the first time a drive by has happened on their street, and they are hoping something can be done to stop the violence.

"We can't enjoy the day, sometimes. Don't know what's going to happen, and then with this drive by, bullets don't respect no one," said Pastor Manuel Campos, a resident of that neighborhood. "I'm just glad those bullets didn't have names when they hit the house, because I think it would of hit those people."

Again, no one was hurt, and at this point police have no leads or suspects in the drive-by shooting. If you have any information, please call Crime Stoppers at 361-888-8477.
