Three people were wounded in a drive-by shooting in Omaha Saturday morning.

Two women and a man were sitting in a vehicle in front of a home at North 46th and Fort streets around 6:15 a.m. when a dark-colored vehicle, possibly red with dark windows, drove past and someone inside opened fire. Police say at least seven shots were fired.

Thirty-six-year-old Shamecha Holloway was hospitalized in critical but stable condition, 24-year-old Danna Jones was in stable condition and 28-year-old Jermaine Stewart was in stable condition, all at the Nebraska Medical Center.

The neighborhood says this kind of violence isn't anything new in the area.

Terry Bicking says he stays cautious, but thinks his family will be safe as along as they stay out of harm's way.

"Everybody knows that we've been here forever, but we just keep to ourselves and don't bother them," he says.

However, others like William Rahmes say they've had enough.

He says there's an answer for the violence problem.

"Policemen are doing the best that they can, but we as parents and members of this community, we need to come together and talk to our children," he says.
