MEMPHIS, Tenn. — On Friday there were three people recovering from gunshot wounds but many people WREG talked to said they're victims too.

Victims in their own homes because of the violence in the area.

Memphis Police say three people were shot at the Keystone Landing Apartments off Ridgestone.

They arrived to the hospital by private vehicles.

Tape covers the bullet hole in 62-year-old Creed Stepney`s apartment window.

He was sitting feet away on his couch when he heard what sounded like a war zone.

"I`m sitting here eating. Before I can sit down good just, boom, boom and I hit the floor," said Stepney.

Miraculously he credits a curtain for stopping the bullet from going any further into his home we were there today when maintenance inspected the shot up window.

Stepney said he knew Thursday night something was off when he saw about 30 people outside, mostly young men.

"I am scared to leave because there's so many out there," said Stepney

He said he rarely leaves his home, except to go to his dialysis treatments.

Right now it`s unclear what exactly led to the gunfire but a police report says three people were shot, one of them six times. Multiple cars and other apartments were shot up too.

"It was about 15 or 20 shots," said another woman who lives at the complex.

For retiree Stepney, who has lived in his unit for five years enough is enough.

He`s already dealing with enough with dialysis he wants the young people causing the chaos in his neighborhood to think before they pull the trigger.

“It’s sad. I mean it’s sad they don’t care nothing about life. "
