CHARLOTTE, NC- Police are searching for the gunman who shot five people at a home on William Reynolds Drive in East Charlotte early Saturday morning.

Multiple bullet holes marked the home where neighbors say more than 50 people partied into the morning hours on Saturday.

Charlotte Mecklenburg police responded to a call at the home around 2:45a.m Saturday. When officers arrived on scene, there were five men suffering from gunshot wounds in the front yard. Medic says three of the men shot were transported to the hospital and treated for life threatening injuries.

"My parents live here, I'm here, my daughter is here. That's a concern when there are shoot outs going on right next door," said neighbor, Johnny Delgado.

Neighbors like Jose Aria hope out-of-hand house parties stay out of the neighborhood.

"Send more police to look around here almost every night because I'm telling you - it's dangerous, very dangerous around here," said Arias.
