CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Police tape and a hat lying on the ground are sad reminders of a triple shooting that happened outside the Zulu Motorcycle Club on Saturday, March 2nd.  

19 Action News Reporter, Dawn Kendrick spoke to a woman who lives right next door about her take on the recent shootings.

Linda Welch says she feels like she's living in a war zone.

"I'm terrified - really. I've got grandchildren. It's time to stop this!" cries Welch.

Police say three people were shot at the club overnight - two of them women. One man was shot in the foot.  Welch heard the shots.
