CHAMPAIGN -- People in one neighborhood are concerned after hearing gunshots for the second day in a row. It happened Monday near the 1200-block of Neil Street. Sunday, it was on Arcadia Drive, also near Neil Street. There haven't been reports of injuries in either shooting.

Monday, officers went door-to-door to talk with neighbors about what they heard. One of the block watch leaders says the more people are aware of this issue, the better.

"It affects your peace of mind as a citizen," said Sherri Rush, who is the Arcadia Drive neighborhood watch co-captain. "It's just a shame that these misguided youth are doing this because it's just hurting the whole community."

Neighbors say police have done a great job responding to the calls. Investigators say there wasn't any property damage after Monday's shooting. They didn't find any shell casings. Police don't believe the noises were fireworks because of the number of people who called in about it.
