CLEVELAND -- Residents who have lived on East 146th Street in Cleveland remember a very different time.

"It used to be beautiful, everyone got along and kids played together and it was peaceful," says long-time resident Kellee Mills.

But now, this neighborhood has been rocked by violence that even landed a 4-year-old in the crossfire of a drive-by shooting. He survived but the street wants more help from police and the city.

"We are now watching the streets and trying to keep them safe, because no one is helping enough," says Jeff Goodwin.

Vandalism at East Clark School has been repaired by the Cleveland Schools and police say they are patrolling more.
