Wickham Dr. neighbors feel unsafe following deadly shooting

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - After a late Wednesday night shooting on Wickham Drive in Columbus neighbors say they feel the area is unsafe and falling victim to a pattern of violence.

"I mean what would have happened if I was out there and I would have gotten caught by a straight bullet? I mean that kind of stuff just rolls through my head all the time." says area resident, Josh Tidwell.

Tidwell says he's not surprised there's been another shooting in the area where he lives. Columbus police say officers were called to 32 Wickham Drive late Thursday in reference to three people being shot. The victims were taken to Midtown Medical Center. That shooting, officials say claimed the life of 24-year-old Lashay Ford.
