MANCHESTER - Police are investigating another shooting in Manchester - this time in a familiar area on West Street.
Luckily, no one was injured. NH1 News asked police if they had new violent crimes numbers to share with the public but our requests went unanswered again.
Last quarter Chief Nick Willard reported violent crime was down, but in light of the recent random shootings, people who live in the Queen City said they feel differently.
Manchester police were out canvasing a West Side neighborhood where several shots were fired into 91 West St. on Wednesday.
This is the second time this building has been hit with bullets, and the families that live there say they feel they're being targeted.
“They say that they are working on it. They seem to be doing more this time than last time,” said Nicole Cepeda-Perez who has had enough with recent shootings. “Now bullets came through my house, and what a block away a cop got shot and now last night more bullets coming through my house."
Cepeda-Perez said she knows her four kids can’t be the cause of the bullets flying.
“Honestly it looks like they are targeting whoever lives here but my kids and I don’t know who they could be targeting.”
Cepeda-Perez has been the victim of the two shootings just weeks apart. Her front windows leading into her son’s bedroom have been filled with bullet holes twice now.
He’s since moved out.
“Scariest part was two weeks ago my 3-year-old grandson just came out of the bedroom, and the bullet that came through the front window went through two walls and then came out by my daughter’s bed where she was sleeping,” said Cepeda-Perez.
She said she’s looking to move.
Surveillance video shows someone around 4 a.m., walking into the parking lot across the street from 91 West St.. The video shows someone as they extend their arms, aiming at the front of the building. They then fire multiple times and then run off.
“I know they're doing their best, but there needs to be a quicker response," said Donna Derocher, who lives on West Street with her two young children. " I mean there are people out here that care about their family.”
Police made their presence known in the neighborhood on Wednesday, but some residents said that one day of foot traffic isn’t enough when kids could be at stake.
“I don’t let them take off on their bikes,” said Damon Martineau, whose children go to school in the area. “I don’t trust the neighborhood or the people around here.”
“You got East Side shootings, you got West Side shootings, you got drug busts, you got all these things and you got one with bullets going right through someone’s house with kids. That makes it even more unsafe,” said Michael Ayres who lives on Manchester’s West Side.
Victims told NH1 News that police do have bullet casings from the scene and will be running finger prints.
There is no description of the shooter in the surveillance video but if you have any information related to the case, please contact the Manchester Police Detective Division at 603-792-5500. You can also contact the Manchester Police Crimeline at 603-624-4040.
