TEMPE, AZ (CBS5) -
Three neighbors who live along Javalina Avenue in Mesa are all telling the same, chilling story of having to duck flying bullets Thursday night.
"Bap, bap, bap, bap, bap, bap; I mean just really loud in succession," Darlene Lorence said as she mimicked the sound of the gunfire.
The three neighbors who talked to CBS 5 also said it quickly became clear what they were hearing around 11:30 last night.
"At first I thought it was firecrackers, and then it started to sound like gunfire, and the next thing I hear something go thru the window, and I grabbed him and ducked and covered," Catherine Kelly explained as she was holding her baby boy.
She said she wasn't concerned about seeing where the bullets came from.
"The windows that we have, they're double-pained, so it stopped the bullet from going further," Kelly said.
But Kelly's neighbor, Cece Delco, was standing in her kitchen when the shooting neared her house.
"If somebody turns down here or if they're going to flip a U-turn, you can see the lighting [from their headlights[," Delco said.
Details on what happened on Javalina are vague, but Mesa police said a car made a U-turn in the neighborhood. An SUV behind it at the time, possibly a Chevy Silverado, for an unknown reason followed that car and opened fire on the four people inside. Three of those people were wounded, but their injuries are said to be non-life-threatening.
Delco said when she thought it was safe she stepped outside to check on her neighbor.
"Were they shooting at our house, or were they shooting at their house? Because we both came out, and we both just had stunned looks," Delco added.
Even they could no longer see where the bullets were coming from, they could still hear them ringing out well down the street.
"I ran to the back door, and I opened it up and I could hear gunfire still going on," said Lorence, who lives several houses down Javalina from Kelly and Delco.
Those who heard the bullets said they're frightened to now know the circumstances of what happened. But more than that, they're also furious.
"I'm very angry, I'm very angry," Kelly said. "Not only did they endanger myself and my husband, but they endangered my son."
Police said the whole incident ended in Tempe on the northbound side of the Loop 101 between Broadway and Southern. They told CBS 5 there is no indication there was an altercation before the car made the U-turn. Nor does it appear the people in the car knew who was in the Chevy Silverado.
