Neighbors said the sound of gunfire is becoming too familiar.

“We heard gunshots, which is becoming real familiar,” Joe Sarubbi, who lives in Sheraden, said. “Every other week it seems like there’s gunshots going off in the neighborhood, and it’s getting crazy. I have bullets going through windows. You got kids around, too. So, it’s dangerous.”
