UPDATE | Gunfire exchanged between vehicles in Huntington

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- UPDATE 6/7/19 @ 10 p.m.
A relaxing Friday afternoon took an unexpected turn in a neighborhood in Huntington.

Huntington Police Chief Hank Dial says witnesses reported people in two vehicles, a black truck and red SUV, shot at each other before driving off in different directions. It happened at 23rd Street and 10th Avenue.

"I heard like 9 shots," Makya Johnson said.

Around 2:30 p.m., neighbors along the 1000 block of 23rd Street heard shots.

"It really scared me a lot," Lyle Sloane said.

Witnesses told Huntington police people in a black vehicle and red SUV started shooting at each other and then took off in opposite directions.

"It's the first time I've ever seen anything like it," Sloane said. "Now that I've witnessed something like this, I'll probably be a little more skeptical coming out and just sitting outside on the porch alone."

Police say nobody in the neighborhood was hit by any stray bullets. Officers found shell casings in the area.

"This violence, whatever is going on, needs to stop," Johnson said.

Johnson and her five kids were home at the time of the shooting. She has a plea for those involved.

"Can you all please stop doing this?" Johnson said. "We've got babies out here. This is getting out of hand. Our babies are more important than you all fighting and beefing over little petty stuff. You all need to squash it, be a man, and come to a conclusion of doing something better than what you're doing, because this is ridiculous."

Huntington police are still looking for the suspect vehicles in question.
