CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The Cape Girardeau Police Department arrested two men in connection to an investigation on two reports of shootings at the same home on Ranney Avenue.

Felix Malik Jones, 18, was charged with first degree robbery, first degree burglary, first degree assault, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.

Emanuel M. Crespo, 17, was charged with first degree robbery, first degree burglary, first degree assault, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.

According to police, they received several calls of shots fired on Nov. 10.

Police say when they got to the house and interviewed the homeowner, he said some people broke into his home. He said he told the suspects he didn't have any money, but they took a shotgun and fired a round as they left.

On Nov. 11, police say they received another call about shots fired, this time from the homeowner they talked to before.

"It shouldn't happen. We're talking an hour after dark. People everywhere. It's getting out of hand," said homeowner Rick Emerson.

The man told officers he heard a noise outside of his house and he opened his front door to find two men.

Police say on Nov. 11 they did find evidence that shots were fired at the home.

Rick Emerson, the homeowner, said that three people broke into his home on Nov. 10 and took several items including a shotgun. He said he ran after the suspects and was shot at as soon as he got off of his porch.

Emerson said he dove back inside and was not injured.

He said the bullets hit various parts of the home, including windows, a glass door that shattered, his deck and another door.

Emerson said three more shots were fired at his home on Nov. 11.

He said he wants this to stop and hopes the individuals are caught.

Emerson's neighbors confirmed the shootings. One neighbor has surveillance footage of the three shots on Nov. 11.

They also say they want the shootings to stop and hope someone will step up and share any information they have with police so the people responsible for the shootings will be caught.

"How many people have to die or get hurt before all of this stuff ends? Because you know the whole neighborhood down there. I got calls from different neighbors today. They're terrified. And they've had it," said neighbor Don Howard.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
