UPDATE: Police confirmed a fifth man showed up to the hospital after the incident.

Today, we know all victims are expected to be okay.

Officers believe this is a targeted attack and are still looking for the suspect.

This is not the first shooting to occur in this neighborhood.

Local 4’s Zachary Winiecki spoke with Joan Pranschke, who has lived in the area for 58 years.

She says the neighborhood hasn’t always been this bad, but one time, she had a bullet go through her front window.

As a result, she now has security cameras on her house, and she also has a routine when she sees police lights.

Pranschke says police have done their best to patrol the area, but they can’t be everywhere at once, which is why she feels all of these safety measures are necessary.

Also, two vehicles at the shooting scene appeared to have been damaged by gunfire.
