Riverview, MO (KSDK) - For a second time in a week, shots have been fired out in the open on the same street in Riverview.

Residents say the drive-bys have been picking up the past year near the intersection of Diamond Drive and Chambers Road.

"Guns don't kill people, people kill people and stray bullets can kill anyone," says Jon Manning, resident of Riverview.

Neighbors are becoming fearful, watching and listening to the violence on Diamond drive near Chambers Road.

Just four days after a drive-by shooting that left the fire department with a bullet wound, residents say there has been another shooting. This time in broad daylight.

Residents in this Riverview neighborhood say they heard the gunshots Sunday around 12:30 p.m.

The evidence is a bullet wound to a stained glass window of the Zion Travelers Missionary Baptist church and to a store owner's parked vehicle.

"Last two weeks this is really what's been happening, they've just been shooting up everything," says Manning.

He says for his family it's not safe living off Diamond drive.
Tara Leach says for her co-workers at a local convenience store it's not safe working off Diamond drive.

She says it's hard to feel comfortable in this area.

"As long as I am inside, outside, no, I don't even go on that street anymore," says Leach.

For these residents they says the gun violence is going too far and at any time instead of a building it could be a person.

"It's not right, it's not right at all very disgraceful, disrespectful, not caring what going on in the neighborhood," she says.
