Burke claimed her son and their next door neighbor got into a fight before she heard the shots. She also said her young grandson was injured. That child is expected to be okay, according to Burke.

“I’m sick, I’m sick because my son, he pretty much, you know, knows the streets but he kept saying, ‘momma, they’re gonna get me, they’re gonna get me,'" Burke said.

Burke said the alleged shooter took off. Soon after, a crowd gathered and tensions boiled at the scene as police surrounded a yellow home, which Burke said is the alleged shooter’s home. Officers entered with guns drawn but came out empty handed.

Police have not made in arrests in the shooting, or released suspect information.

Anyone with information can call 574-LMPD.
