ATLANTA - Neighbors in a northwest Atlanta community met with Atlanta police after two shooting incidents at area recording studios. 
"Lots of gunfire, lots of yelling and lots of speeding cars," said neighbor Andrew Crawford. 

Stephanie Trubic told Channel 2's Amy Napier Viteri gunshots woke her as well in the early morning of April 24 in the Berkeley Park neighborhood. 

"We had a bullet come through our front porch,” Trubic said. "Came through our front door and onto our front porch."

Her 16-month-old son was sleeping inside at the time. Atlanta police said several people tried to rob a group leaving a recording studio on Forrest Street. Two men went to the hospital, one shot in the back, another pistol whipped. 

"I just want to know what's going to happen, what they're going to do to ensure safety of the neighborhood -- the kids," Trubic added.

Atlanta police Lt. Rod Woody met with neighbors after the second shooting at a studio on Antone Street. One man was shot to death and another was shot and went to the hospital. Police added patrols and assigned their traffic unit to the area as well. 

"We've kind of taken a zero-tolerance policy to loitering, parking issues, you know, traffic violations," Woody told Viteri. "We realize that our perpetrators are in vehicles and they are driving up in the area."

Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding both shootings. At this time no arrests have been made.
