The shooting at 245 Bannister St.  was reported at 1:30 p.m.

At the time of the shooting, Mrs. Ferguson had a protection order against Mr. Dixson.

Police said the incident appears to have been a “targeted incident involving an estranged ex-boyfriend.”

Numerous calls were made to 911 after hearing gunshots -- one caller said she was trying to protect her children.

"We need the police," she said. "Gunshots fired. 245 Bannister Street. Please hurry."

A second caller reported that a victim was in a car and shot.

The third and apparently final caller said he had just gotten home from church and was reporting gunshots and that a man was in his car firing a gun.
