CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Residents of a West Ashley neighborhood are concerned after two shootings happened at the same house exactly a week apart.

Two men, including the suspect were shot Wednesday night at the home on Hoss Road in the Ponderosa Subdivision, according to Charleston County deputies.

Investigators say the victim answered a knock at the door and got into a wrestling match with the suspect.

Authorities say shots were fired and both men were hit.

"Really scared, seeing the yellow tape again. That tells me maybe somebody got shot or somebody got killed. That's right at home right there," resident Allen Patterson said.

A man who asked us not to show his face heard the shots.

"We were watching TV and we heard five or six shots go off and about two minutes later three shots down there at the end of the street," Bryan said. He declined to give his last name.

Exactly a week ago, deputies say another man was shot at the house.

According to investigators, the victim was found in the front yard with several gunshot wounds.

It's something Patterson, whose lived in the neighborhood for 40 years isn't used to.

"This thing that just happened concerns me because it's right back to back," he says. "It seems like it's going to get a little frequent, but I hope it dies down. Once that bullet leaves the gun, it goes anywhere."

The sheriff's office says it has been called to the house three times in the past six months.

The calls were for the two shootings and burglary.

Bryan says he's seen enough.

"I'm looking to move, yep, it's not good," he says.

And for those who choose to stay here, they will be staying alert.

The sheriff's office says the two men shot last night are in critical condition at MUSC.

No arrest has been made in last week's shooting.
