Just before 6 p.m. Friday, Charleston Police were called out to 1400 block of Stuart Street for a shooting.

Neighbors said it isn't a shock.

"I just pray that it's not my house and go on," Babs Boberski of Charleston said.

When police arrived they found 31-year-old Josh Prichard had been shot in the leg. Prichard, who's homeless, was taken to the hospital and was not cooperating with police.

"That is where all the homeless drug heads stay, up in that house and there is another empty house. (They) stay in all the board up houses or whatever is empty around the hood," said Boberski.

Boberski says she just wants to see the lawbreakers locked up and out of her neighborhood.

"I just stay here, because I hate to say because it's affordable and I got 3 dogs, no one lets you have too many dogs," said Boberski.

As for Boberski and others living on the street, it's just another day.

"It's just another day in the hood honey, every day it's something," said Boberski.

Police say no arrests have been made and they have no suspects yet.
