"It's a dangerous situation for these people around here," said a friend of a woman who works near the intersection where the shots were fired. "There's a lot of good people around here, and I come through all the time. I don't want people to worry about their safety."
She didn't want to be identified.
A neighbor, Ken Lewis, said he knew something was going on as news crews arrived at the scene.
"Didn't know it was a shooting going on. If I had known it was a shooting going on, I wouldn't have come out," Lewis said. "Man, they got to do something about these guns."
The driver is expected to recover. The driver of the other car, a woman, had minor injuries.
