Lansing police are ramping up patrols after a drive-by shooting on Christopher Street near Willow Street on Monday. Neighbors say that's not the first time they've heard shots fired and some even pointed to bullet holes on their houses, which they say serve as a constant reminder.
Teresa Andrews lived on the street all her life and moved out a few years ago. However, her family still lives there and the shootings hit her close to home.
"There are kids everywhere, they're all my family. For them to not even be able to play outside and be safe in their yard, I don't think it's fair," Andrews said.
She wants police to step up and rid the neighborhood of violence for good. Lansing police say their efforts have already begun.
"Residents could expect to probably see us a little bit more and there are some efforts taking place that may not be as visible," said Lt. Darin Southworth.
According to Lt. Southworth, the cause of shootings in the area is still under investigation. However, a handfull of neighbors pointed to one house on the street which they say is at the center of it all.
"You're hearing people say it's drug violence, you're hearing people say it's family rivalry. It doesn't matter what it's over. I mean, guns are guns," said Andrews.
Andrews points out safety is the key issue and she thinks police are not doing enough. Lansing police want to assure residents that they're on the lookout.
Noone was injured in Monday's drive-by shooting.
