The shooting of a man late Thursday morning in Akron's North Hill neighborhood isn't even the worst shooting witnessed by neighbors on West Mildred Avenue.
Kevin Lewno says his 11 year old son saw the latest shooting, while in the attic of their home across the street, when he was home from school.
"He looked through the attic window, and saw the man being shot the first time, and he fell to his knees," Lewno tells AkronNewsNow.com. "And then the man being shot two more times."
But in the eight years Lewno's family has lived there, he says other family members saw an even more gruesome scene.
"Two years ago, a man was murdered right out in front of our house, was shot in the head," Lewno says. "And my youngest saw that, and my wife saw that one, too."
Lewno tells AkronNewsNow.com that a nearby park attracts drug dealers and other crime, and says he'd like the city of Akron to install cameras in the area to deter such activity.
He says the area off North Howard Street hears gunshots on a regular basis.
The victim of Thursday's shooting reportedly suffered injuries to his hip.
