Pleasantville shooting leaves one injured, residents fed up

Posted: Updated:
    North Fourth Street in Pleasantville was flooded with police and swat team members after a shooting Saturday morning.

    "Swat team. I've never seen that in person," says Deborah Goods, a Pleasantville resident.

    "It's like a never–ending nightmare," says Lyan Cruickshank, a Pleasantville resident. 

    Local residents say they are fed up with the recent gun violence that has been disturbing their neighborhood for the last few days.

    "The other day they came around three in the morning. That's the time i'm bringing my dog out. I didn't make it out that morning because the gun shots we heard," says Goods.

    "As a parent i'm real concerned, but it's an ongoing concern," says John Wright, a local Boy Scout Den Leader. 

    Thursday morning police say multiple shots were fired in the same area, and more than 35 shell casings were found by police, including nearly a dozen found inside a home on the 200 block of Fourth Street. No one was home at the time of the shooting.

    "Scared. Scared. It makes me want to move out," says Goods. 

    "It's terrible because you would think the shooter would think there's kids and they're playing and all of that kind of stuff," says Wright.

    Police are not releasing any further information on Saturday's shooting but sources tell NBC 40 that a man was shot in the foot and was treated at an area hospital.

    "It's scary. There are a lot of children out here playing. Every single day you see them coming home from school," says Cruickshank.

    "It's crazy. I've never seen it before. Not in my neighborhood," says Goods. 

    Local parents say the recent pattern of violence has them frightened.

    "It's not right that you have to keep your kids inside because this is going on," says Cruickshank. 

    It's a little scary. It's too close. Too close to home," says Goods.
