Repeated violence on Fagan Street has residents moving out

Posted: Updated:

A shooting Saturday evening in Chattanooga sent four people to the hospital, landed two people in jail on attempted murder charges and has neighborhood residents saying enough is enough.

Fagan street resident Willie Kimble packed up his belongings in his van. He said he's moving out of the neighborhood because he's sick of the violence.

"They come by, they get angry. Then they start a little fuss, then all of a sudden they start shooting," Kimble said.

The most recent violence happened Saturday evening, when four people were shot after an argument got out of hand right outside of Kimble's home.

Chattanooga police said Latrell Walker, 28, and Tevin Douglas, 23, are facing multiple charges from attempted murder to evading arrest. They allegedly led police on a chase after the shooting.

Two of the victims remain in critical condition. One of them is just 16 years old.

Fagan Street is no stranger to violence. Kimble said a recent shooting left bullet holes in his bedroom while he was laying down and watching television.

"I had God on my side. He's my protection, so I wasn't afraid," Kimble said.

Police said Saturday evening's shooting is still under investigation. Channel 3 will be sure to update you as soon as more details are available.
