LAKE RIDGE, Va. – Neighbors reported hearing gunshots and now police are performing a full on crime scene search in Lake Ridge.

Officers are using flashlights and are canvassing the area in patterns, searching the streets at the intersection of Antietam Road and Woodfern Court.

Police scrambled to the area just before 10 p.m. Monday. There’s no word yet from police as to what went down here.

Neighbors are rattled as they looked on at the sea of police cruisers that have amassed in their neighborhood.

“It just sounded like a pop, pop-pop, pop, pop, and then I ran downstairs to tell my husband what I heard,” said Deborah Jackson, who lives across the street from where police had roped of the street.

She and her husband, Jerry, have lived here for 20 years.

“You can’t tell sometimes with the echoing sometimes. Sometimes people will be in the woods behind our house and shoot off a few rounds, but this is very different. This is unsettling,” said Jerry Jackson.

In addition to the streets, police were also searching the front yards of homes that line the streets as well as a tennis court.
