MEMPHIS, Tenn. -  Memphis police say a Hickory Hill home was riddled with bullets early Monday morning to silence at least two witnesses to a 2013 murder.

No one was hurt in the shooting in the 7000 block of Falls Hollow Cove.

The people who live there say there were seven adults inside the home when several people opened fire.

Police found 43 shell casings outside the home and say the bullets hit several parked cars nearby, and even a vehicle two streets away.

"It’s unfortunate and it’s idiotic. I was thinking about it all day yesterday and feeling helplessness," said neighbor Patrick Tabor.

Tabor, who lives two doors away, now has a bullet hole in his back driver's side door.

The victims were able to identify Cordney Smith as one of the shooters.

Smith, along with Calvin McMickens, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Keishawn White.

White was gunned down in the parking lot of a gas station at Brooks and Millbranch last year.

Smith and McMickens are still waiting to go on trial.

Smith is now facing a new charge of attempted first degree murder.

Police are looking for the others involved.
