Gunmen shoot up Waco neighborhood, enticing family to move

Channel 6 news reporter Kurtis Quillin reports.

WACO - Police found at least 70 shell casings in a Waco neighborhood Friday afternoon.
 
The discovery came after police got calls around 4:30 p.m. about gunfire in the 2400 block of Grim Avenue, according to the Waco Police Department.
 
When officers arrived, police found several cars with bullet holes. Investigators said they learned four males pulled up to a home and opened fire, hitting three vehicles.
 
A couple who live down the street told Channel 6 they have had enough.
 
After Friday's shooting, the couple decided to move Gatesville in efforts to get away from the violence. In fact, one of their parents drove to Waco to help them move out of their house Saturday afternoon.
 
The husband who moved out this afternoon, Rossie Gaiter, told Channel 6 he does not feel like he can go to work and feel his wife is safe at home anymore. 
 
"We were at home and the next thing we know, we hear gunshots going off," Gaiter said. "I get really curious, look out the window and see five gentleman shooting out to the left of my house, shooting down the street. It freaked us out so much we're moving to a new place, we don't want to stay over here anymore."
 
A restaurant down the street said they also heard the gunshots, but never moved toward them.
 
No people were hit, according to police.
 
Anyone with information about the shooters should call Waco Police at 254-750-7500.

The shell casings included several calibers of pistol and rifle rounds.
