The remnants of dozens of bullets could be found along Richardson Street where Atlanta Police spent hours processing the crime scene.

Authorities said they got the call that someone in a dark-colored car drove by and starred shooting just after 5 p.m. All victims were alert, conscious and breathing as they were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

During the investigation, officials said officers found additional victims with bullet holes in their cars.

"People go to arguing, and they don’t think, and they pull out their weapons," Pascoe told FOX 5. "Bullets don’t have no name."

She said this isn’t the Mechanicsville she remembers.

"It goes on all the time, and it’s scary," Pascoe continued. "The kids can’t even go to the park and play without them shooting."

While she said she’s praying police are able to track down the person responsible, she and others want to see an end to the violence and more patrols from Atlanta police.

Investigators haven’t shared any additional details about a suspect at this time, but say the investigation is ongoing.
