What began as a quiet Saturday night suddenly turned noisy when neighbors on 26th Avenue Southwest in Golden Gate City.

Neighbors reported what sounded like multiple gunshots shortly after midnight. When Fox 4 spoke with them Sunday and they were still in shock about what happened. 

One neighbor Four In Your Corner spoke with asked not to be identified, but described to us how the sound of gunshots woke him up. 

"I was in bed, on my phone", he said. "I heard about six gunshots and it woke me up pretty good". 

Collier County sheriff's deputies say they responded to a call about multiple shots at the 4500 block of 26th Avenue Southwest just after midnight. The incident has left some people who live on the street on edge about their safety and that of their families. 

"We do have a little boy so we thought it would be nice to raise him here but this is all new to me. I had no idea this was going on and now we are concerned to honest". 

That what one woman who lives just a few houses down from where the shooting took place Fox 4 when asked if the shooting raised any concerns for her about the neighborhood. She says she's only lived in the neighborhood for about two months but has lived in the area for years. 

Ast night, she says she was watching movies with her grandparents when she heard the shot's ring out. At first, she thought they were fireworks until deputy's cars pulled up on her street a short time later. 

At this time, the Collier County Sheriff's Office is still collecting information. Anyone who knows anything about the incident is urged to contact Southwest Florida Crimestoppers
