But Saturday night on Hendrix Street a gun shot rang out leaving one man in the hospital with a leg wound after an incident Fayetteville Police say was drug related.
"I'm totally shocked, totally shocked," says Steven Phillips, who's daughter lives that the home where the incident happened.
But folks in the area, say the neighborhood is mostly families, not a place for drugs and guns.
"It's calm, quiet--we leave our scooters in our front yard and don't have anything to worry about. I don't see anyone causing problems or anything," says Nick Brewer, a neighbor.
But police say the shooter and the victim don't live at the house on Hendrix, they were just visiting the woman who does.
When her step-father Steven Phillips showed up to drop her two sons off, he was glad the five and seven year olds were with him on Saturday night.
"My grandson could have been there and why would anyone come in anybody's house with a gun knowing there could be kids there," says Phillips.
Officers arrested Robert Henry Jr. Sunday evening after convincing him to come into the police station.
And even though the suspected gunman is behind bars, neighbors are still in shock.
"There's kids over there, so I just never thought anything like that would happen here," says Domenique Bickham, a neighbor.
"I can't believe it, to be honest with you," says Molly Staeheli, who lives across the street.
"I need to start locking my doors now," says Bickham.
Despite the scare, Steven is glad his daughter is safe.
"You see other families who are going through that type of stuff with something happening to their loved ones and then all the sudden it's a harsh reality that it could have been your daughter," says Phillips.
Police say the victim is in stable condition and is scheduled for surgery.
Robert Henry Jr is now facing several charges including aggravated robbery, aggravated assault and battery in the first degree.
