WATERLOO (KWWL) -

 "Boom, boom, boom, boom! I came out on my porch, there was a blue Nissan here, a black car there, exchanging fire, man. I told my wife to lay down."

Lance Youngberg saw it all, and says he is sick of the violence.

Multiple evidence markers lined the streets of West 2nd Street and Western Avenue.

"It was so quick, just boom, boom boom! Then, 'get out of here, get out of here!" he accounts.

Police say they received reports of people in two cars firing at each other around 11 am Tuesday.

"We got a lot of little kids around here, and this just ain't right," says Youngberg.

Police officers searched for bullet casings in nearby grass, and by a van. 

Police aren't sure whether a purple van parked nearby had anything to do with the shooting.

They believe a stray bullet hit the van, and blew out its back window.

The van has been towed, and will be needed for evidence.
