EUCLID, Ohio-- Two people are shot, leaving residents on edge in a Northeast Ohio suburb. Police continue to search for the gunman.

Euclid police are not releasing the names or conditions of the victims.  They also say they have no information to release about the suspect.

"About 12:30 I heard some shots, about six, and it came from up here," said Euclid resident, Dave Parker.

Many Euclid residents woke up to gunfire early Monday morning.  Police say around 12:30 a.m., two people were shot in the area of East 260th Street and Euclid Avenue.

All of a sudden I hear all these loud shots, like it was six to 10 gunshots, so I ran downstairs and told my daughter 'did you hear those gunshots?' She was like 'yeah,' so next thing I know I hear the ambulance," said another concerned resident who did not want to give her name.

Euclid police say both people who were shot were hospitalized as a result of the shooting.

"Then a car went down there and had a accident down there by the bridge,” said Parker.

There are skid marks in the street and a fire hydrant was broken, but police are not saying how the accident may be related to the shooting.

"I been here five years. I ain't have no problem, ain't no problem. It's nice around here," said Parker.

"It's pretty good out here. It's just like every other month or so, it's some gunfire," said another resident.

Residents say the area is typically quiet, but they have been worried about increasing violence in the neighborhood.

"It don't happen around here. It don't happen around here," said Parker.

"I've been out here for four years, and it was okay when I first got here, but like I say, now I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. It's just getting bad," the woman said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Euclid police at 216-289-8505.
