UPDATE: One person injured in Waterloo shooting

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

UPDATE: Waterloo police say no arrests have been made in this case, but believe there are multiple suspects involved. 

Waterloo police confirm there was a shooting near South View Drive this morning. 

Police say a man was shot in the leg and taken to a nearby hospital. A car was also on scene with multiple bullet holes and a broken window. 

Neighbors near South View Drive know their neighborhood as the quiet part of town. 

"There's barely even traffic around here, it's quiet all the time," said BreAnn O'Connell. 

"No no never, not a shot," said Cook. "And I'll tell you what, we might've had some issues but it wasn't ever to that level."

Cook has lived in this neighborhood for twenty years, but the scene he saw this morning was a first. 

"It looked like a big time crime scene," said Cook. 

BreAnn O'Connell lives down the street, and has two young children. 

"It's two blocks away, what if my son would've been outside?" said O'Connell. "What if I would've been out here just walking my daughter in her stroller or something. Like that's two blocks away."

O'Connell saying this shooting hits too close to home. 

"You would think that as much trouble that's going on in this town and all the deaths and everything, people would learn, but obviously it's just getting worse and worse," said O'Connell. 

Neighbors say the violence needs to end, urging others to work with police. 

"If you see something suspicious don't wait till something happens," said Cook. "Make the call, it doesn't hurt you. And that way you can help the police keep things vigilant and keep things at a level where we can all live in peace around here because this is sad that this is going on."

Police are investigating. If you have any information, please call Waterloo Police.
