OKLAHOMA CITY - A man is in the hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest after a violent shooting in Northeast Oklahoma City.

Investigators are now searching for the gunman.

Residents at the Heritage Pointe Apartments near Northeast 23rd and Kelley are upset, begging for crime to stay out of their complex.

"I'm getting tired of all this shooting and all this stuff over the crime in the neighborhood," said Steven Burton.

Residents standby, wanting to know what happened as police investigate a shooting that sent one man to the hospital.

"I have a one-year-old and I just want to, it feels like I just want to move now," said Burton.

Steven Burton's apartment was just feet away from the flying bullets.

His daughter's window was right in the line of fire.

"She was in the front room with me, it could have been where she could've been shot, by her bedroom window," said Burton.

When police got to the scene the victim was on the ground in this parking lot with a gunshot wound to the chest, he was alive and alert and was transported to the hospital.

"We take calls all throughout the area, we stay busy around here," said Capt. Daniel Stewart with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

"There's a lot of crime," said Sheik Ali.

Residents like Sheik Ali were awakened by the gunfire.

He said the senseless shooting needs to stop.

"This situation here, this country, they need a lot of prayers for the youth, the new generations, the youth need a lot of help," said Sheik Ali.

Burton is begging for the police to step up their patrols to help keep his family safe.

"Any more protection around here. Police need to come through and protect all these areas like they should," said Burton.
