Residents tell News 12 say the streets in Newburgh don't seem to be getting any safer. "It's getting worse. I don't see anything getting better. You don't really see it because it always happens at home or a night time or early morning stuff like that. Do you hear the gunshots at night? I hear it. I see it," says resident Sunny Brooks.

So far, no arrests have been made, and police are asking people to come forward with information.
