(Memphis) A fight between two kids led to gunshots between their dads.

Marlo Demo said he heard the hots from a nearby park.

"People talking, yellow tape. All this, it was crazy."

We're told Dante Lockhart started shooting at John Michael Glenn.

He hit him two times, bringing him to the ground, and then shot eight more rounds before police showed up and arrested him.

Porsha Holloway says she was surprised Glenn survived, but says shootings in her neighborhood happen almost every day. She's been shot at before, too.

"One time they were shooting out here and a bullet came through my window. All they could tell me was call the police, put in a report. There is still going to be people shooting around here that's not going to stop."

She says she only lets her kids out during the day, because not even a toddler will stop people from firing their guns.

"Those signs over there say neighborhood watch. What y'all watching? We have to protect ourselves," Holloway said.

Neighbors say the police come around a lot, but only after something bad happens. They want to see more patrol cars, but in the meantime, they just keep their heads down.

Marlo Demo said, "They be around here, but when they leave it starts getting crazy again."

Glenn is listed in critical condition.

      Your post would have had much more impact if your grammar and English usage had been better. You are right, the police cannot do it all. If you see something then call the police and report it and not be afraid to help change your neighborhood.

      May I make a suggestion, they could be tired and frustrated by racist like yourself always putting them down. I am a believer that encouragement to build a person’s self esteem works wonders.

        Hey Doc,

        I wish them well in relieving their frustrations, as long as the critters are far from me.

      Your post is so sad. Do you know how many lives were lost to build a country where everyone would be free? How many lives were lost so that you could make racist remarks?

      It saddens me to think that they may have lost their lives for nothing.

      Here’s a little known fact – Abe wanted to build a fleet of ships and return them to Africa.

    Why is it the The word Racist used to destroy the First Amendment, live were lost to protect people rights to say things that some people might not like to hear. ( but its way pass time for these folks to get over it) most people in our country doesn’t see color, they see result, and when result are not there in a certain community, then people from that community have to cry racism, to protect the status quote and become more racist then the people they are decrying it against. Grow up get a pair and move on.
