Strange events over the weekend in what neighbors say is usually a quiet neighborhood.

Three people shot in a home on Pulaski Street in Flint. A few hours later, the house caught fire.

"There had been little miscellaneous things going on. We don't want to point the finger and cause accusations and things of that nature,” neighbor Onzie Cureton said.

Saturday night miscellaneous escalated to near deadly after police said two men and a woman were shot inside this house around 8:15 p.m.

All three were taken to the hospital and are in good condition.

Now, Flint Police are looking for the suspect who fired at least 20 shots into the home.

Neighbors said not three hours after police left the house following the shooting investigation, the home caught on fire.

A shooting and fire all in at the same house in the same day.

Neighbors said what happened in the house is far from the norm in the quiet Vehicle City neighborhood.

"Yea, it's been a nice quiet neighborhood and everybody around here are homeowners. We've got the yard decorated for Halloween and we try to keep the neighborhood nice and neat,” Cureton said.

With police tape around it, the house at 131 Pulaski Street is now anything but nice and neat - it's burned on the inside and riddled with bullet holes on the outside.

As police continue to investigate a shooting and now a fire neighbors are just hoping for a better tomorrow after a bad weekend way too close to home.

“We're gonna continue to pray for that home over there, and the people that was involved in that home over there and the incidents and the things that happened, hoping we can find a brighter day for tomorrow,” Cureton said.

TV5 reached out to Flint Police for more information and have not heard back.

At this moment, there is no information on identities of the suspects or if the fire and shooting are connected. 

If you have any information related to this shooting or fire you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-422-JAIL.
