"These gentlemen were out there in the middle of a residential neighborhood discharging firearms with no real regard for the safety of anyone else," said Sergeant Craig Stout with the Fayetteville Police Department.
Shots rang out at around 5:15 p.m. on Boxley Avenue, just off Wedington Drive.
"I don't even know what the word is, like, terrifying," said neighbor Tara Galbraith.
"I would have never dreamed it would be in our neighborhood," said neighbor Ruth Hill.
But according to Sgt. Stout, it was not the first time police were called to Boxley Avenue.
"Officers had been to this location previously for a disturbance between these same two parties."
Just hours later, the argument heated back up. Heidi Derringer lives just down the road and heard the threat.
"I got somebody in ten minutes to come take care of you...I guess he sure did."
Investigators said Walter Green and Stephan Perkins pulled out handguns and started exchanging gunfire with the group down the street.
A police report also stated Andrew Wilson-Moore admitted to firing a weapon at the group from his car "to scare people and not 'kill' anyone."
Central EMS confirmed one man was shot and taken to Washington Regional Medical Center with moderate injuries.
"The number of rounds that were exchanged has greatly exceeded what anything else that we've seen," said Stout.
Police arrested Green, Perkins, Moore, and Adrian Smith.
Green, 31, is facing multiple charges including felon in possession of a firearm, tampering with evidence, and engaging in violent group activity. Perkins, 26, is facing several charges including felon in possession of a firearm and engaging in violent group activity. Moore, 25, is facing charges of a terroristic act and engaging in violent group activity. Smith, 35, is facing charges of hindering apprehension.
"These are people who are not even supposed to have weapons in their possession."
Sgt. Stout said Green, Perkins, and Smith are all are convicted felons, Green and Perkins having previous drug charges
"They took it to a very violent extreme," said Stout.
Neighbors are grateful no innocent bystanders were caught in the crossfire.
"Kids walk up and down this street and they walk the corner all the time," said Galbraith.
"Today it's very empty, the kids ain't our playing, nothing, because they're probably frightened...I'm very shocked it didn't hit a child," said Derringer.
Anybody with information about this incident is asked to contact the Fayetteville Police Department at 479-587-3555.
A fifth person was arrested on unrelated charges. This investigation is continuing and more arrests are anticipated.
