Chattanooga Police are investigating a shooting on Daisy Street Sunday night.

In a release, CPD says they received reports of multiple people injured in a drive-by shooting.

"I jumped up and I ran in the house," said Frank Bryant.

That's what Bryant says he did moments after hearing gunshots just feet away from his home.


Police say two juveniles and two adults were injured in the shooting.

Bryant moved in to his house off Daisy Street 27 years ago.

"In the late 90s, early 2000s - this was a good neighborhood. You never hear no gunshots [or] didn't never hear no sirens," Bryant said.

But now?

"Three or four times a day you hear gunshots. Three or four times a day you hear or see sirens going up and down glass street and Dodson," he said.

Bryant wants to give this advice to his neighbors.

"Just be careful and try to watch out for each other," he added.

Police say the victims' injuries are serious, but not life-threatening.

Here are the victims names:

VICTIM 1 (Adult): Charles Patton Jr. (34) - shot in right foot

VICTIM 2 (Adult): Shaderrika Ruffin (19) - grazed in the arm

VICTIM 3 (Juvenile): 15 years of age - shot in left foot

VICTIM 4 (Juvenile): 7 years of age - shot in shoulder/back.

Chattanooga Police have no suspect information at this time.
