Police investigating shots fired in a Steubenville neighborhood

Updated: Wednesday, July 30 2014, 06:05 PM EDT
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio – The Steubenville Police Department received a call just before 1 o’clock Wednesday afternoon of a report of shots fired in the Hilltop area of Steubenville.
Not a lot of information has been released on an incident that took place in between an alley near the 1400 block of Pennsylvania Avenue and Maryland Avenue.
Police do not have any suspects or victims. Neighbors say they witnessed it all, with one woman saying she was walking to the store with her grandchildren and husband when they heard the gunshots. She says she pulled her grandkids back and saw a person in a brand new, small, white car shooting at a black male wearing a pure white sweat suit with dreadlocks, and he was running from the car.
"Something has got to change here on the Hilltop because we have our grandkids all the time in the summer, and I don't want anything to happen to my grandbabies," the neighbor said.
Another neighbor said he heard the shooting going on while he was painting his house.
Police are still investigating the case and searching for the suspect and the target.
