Neighbors react to shots fired in small Nashua neighborhood
NASHUA- A bullet hole in a second floor window at 17 Stevens Avenue in Nashua is the result of one of multiple shots fired in the small neighborhood.
According to Nashua Police Deputy Chief Denis Linehan, they got calls from multiple areas in the neighborhood.
“When they’re fired in a densely populated area it echoes, we had people from several blocks away calling in,” Linehan said.
Police had trouble getting everyone out of the apartment building at first, they called in a Manchester swat team came to assist. Once the resident left the building, they began working with detectives.
“They’re cooperating and providing us with statements, we’re not currently looking for anyone,” Linehan said.
The police activity shut down a portion of Ledge Street, causing a lockdown in the surrounding area for hours.
“I went to go pick up my niece at the boys and girls club, and they said it was on lock down I was like what do you mean? I live right down here saw it all blocked off,” said Ross Boucher who lives nearby.
Neighbors are used to crime on their street but are fed up with recent violence.
“Honestly it’s actually fairly common around here lately, we’ve been having a lot of police stuff happen right down here on the tree streets,” Boucher said.
Kali Barry’s mother lives a street away from Stevens Avenue, she left the area after hearing gunshots.
“I’ve dealt with so much on my street there’s been a murder, there’s been stabbings there’s been so much on my streets that’s happened, this is a never-ending thing,” Barry said.
As of late Tuesday evening there were no arrests or reported injuries.
