BELMONT, N.C. - People living in the Belmont community of Charlotte are scared to remain in their homes after one of their neighbors was terrorized. 

They woke up to police sirens early Tuesday morning on Kennon Street.

Police said a man and three of his friends were standing on the front porch when two suspects robbed them and ordered them to the floor of the home at gunpoint.

One of the victims was struck in the head. Neighbors said someone fired shots into that same home last week.

Neighbors who didn't want to be identified said they're ready to move.

"It scares me. It's scary, you know, to think it's that close to home," the neighbor said.

Neighbors believe that homeowner was targeted because he's a small business owner and drives a nice car.

So far police have not released a description of the suspects.
