Andrew Adams reportingA drive-by shooting in Ogden has the neighborhood on edge. It's one of several shootings in recent months, all believed to be the work of the same gang members.

The shooting happened at 235 28th St. just before midnight on Tuesday.

Kim Shephard didn't have time to think. She says, "I got ahold of her and just dived into the next apartment." Her daughter would have been shot if she was playing where she was just five minutes before. Shephard says, "She was playing in this walker, and there's a bullet hole right there that would have hit her if she still would have been there."

Jordan Nelson says "I felt a serous amount of pain in my left leg, and I couldn't move or stand up." He has a bullet lodged in his leg. He could only crawl for cover in the kitchen.

Lt. Scott Conley says investigators believe the same guys were behind this one. "They may have been involved in a few other incidents that occurred in, say, the last four to six months. "

Police say they're looking for a dark-colored truck or SUV. It's possible there could be another shooting victim who left the apartment complex. Investigators say there were reports of another man who was shot in the back. He hasn't turned up. They're asking local hospitals to keep an eye out.
