A peace vigil was held for Andrews Thursday night and a brief fight broke out. Police officers were able to break up the fight.

People in the area say they are concerned about the crime.

“It’s a bad place, man. They need to do something about it," said Marvin Baker, a man doing renovation work on a nearby home.

Baker said it's not unusual to hear gunshots in the area.

"They got some bad guns over here now," said Baker. "You hang around here long enough, you'll probably hear something."
