Neighbors say the whole thing happened in a matter of seconds and before they knew it, the suspects were gone and they were trying to get the two victims help.

One witness, who was inside his home when the shooting happened outside, says a man was shot at least six times and a woman shot once. He says the woman is stable, but the man was in critical condition and needed surgery.

Police say it happened at a house near S.W. 41st and Santa Fe in Oklahoma City just after 9:30 p.m. Friday. Neighbors who saw it all go down did not want to go on camera with us, out of fear there could be retaliation.

One witness says a group of friends was hanging around when the suspect's car pulled up and opened fire on them, injuring the two. By the time he got outside, the car was gone and two people were on the ground bleeding.

The witness says he thinks some type of altercation happened earlier in the night at a nearby store, and the suspects may have followed the victims back to the neighborhood.

That witness also says kids were outside when the shooting happened. He says crime is common in the area and many people worry about their kid's safety.

Oklahoma City Police say the suspects were in a black Nissan Altima. Anyone with information on the shooting should call police right away.
