Neighbors react to a drive by shooting in Kennewick

KENNEWICK, Wash. - A drive by shooting in Kennewick has parents concerned.  Police said it may be gang related and they are still searching for people involved.

It happened near 16th and Garfield.  Police said two cars were involved in the drive by shooting.  They arrested three people that were in one car, but the search continues for a faded blue Ford Thunderbird.

Many residents in the neighborhood said they are scared.

Sergeant Scott Child is with the Kennewick Police Department.  He said, "We are investigating this incident as a gang related incident at this point and again we are asking for the publics help. Anyone that might have been in the area and saw these two cars."

One neighbor said she is shocked, "What if a bullet went past and hit my house. What if my kids happen to have been outside because it happened during the day. It startled me. It frightened me. It horrified me."

Another woman said she is scared but doesn't know what else she could do, "Just making sure all the kids are safe is my main concern because it's summer and they want to be outside and play and swim."

Many children live in this neighborhood and that seems to be the scariest part for most people. 

Kennewick police encourage anyone with information to contact them.  Child said, "when the chips are down people of this community rally together and work really good with law enforcement. They are really good eyes and ears."
