Gunshots erupted in a local neighborhood, killing two men and sending a third to the hospital. 

It happened just after 2:40 a.m. Monday, Sept. 4 in the 2400 block of W. Dartmouth Street near Kellar.

Lt. Davis Kaiser with Michigan State Police said there were a group of men and women gathered in the street when an argument turned into shots being fired. Neighbors said it's an unfortunate reality in their neighborhood. 

"We heard a whole barrage of shots. Probably 30 shots going back and fourth," said Chris, a witness. "So after the shots were finished. I heard people down on the ground yelling and screaming, so I knew someone had hit or something."

One man died at the scene. Another male victim later died at the hospital, Kaiser said. On Wednesday, Sept. 6, police identified the deceased men as 23-year-old Donquel Lamar Jackson and 22-year-old Dearyes Cory-Jevonta Scott. 

A third male victim, who has not been named, arrived at Hurley Medical Center by a person vehicle and is in good condition, police said. 

Chris said the violent exchange was too close for comfort. 

"It's really scary because now your jumping on the floor. I don't even let my daughter come over here and be outside. I see these little ladies and they don't be outside either," he said. 

Gail Cooper saw the aftermath when coming into work this morning. She's an associate pastor at the Church of the Harvest nearby. She said the church is open for anyone that needs help. 

"Well what i would like to say to the family, unfortunately things happen. But we are just going to trust in general and we will believe in the Lord that he is going to continue to look out for this community. And our doors are always open," Cooper said. 

As for Chris, he said he's had enough of the violence. 

"You running around in these streets time and time again, 20 and 30 year men carrying these little backpacks on - up and down these streets up to no good...and don't want to work," he said.
