A man is dead after a shooting in Hickory Hill.

The shooting happened in the 2900 block of Ridgeway Road.

Police said a person called officers about a man lying in front of their house.

A neighbor on the scene said they heard about five to eight gunshots.

"This is my community; I'm not going to be run out of my community because of things that happen or whatever,” neighbor Traci Conley said.

Investigators said the man was found lying in the street with a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

Conley is one of the residents who woke up to a crime scene in her neighborhood late Friday night.

She is ready to step up and protect herself.

"I think it's time to consider buying protection for my family,” Conley said. "This is too close to home; I've got to. I've already got a security system, but when it comes to protecting my family, I've got to do what I've got to do."

This is an ongoing investigation. No arrests have been made at this time.
