PHOENIX (KSAZ) -

Bullet holes in a wall are reminders of a drive by shooting that left a man dead near downtown Phoenix. Authorities identified the victim as 54 year-old Alan Stewart.
    
Phoenix Police say witnesses last saw a dark SUV believed to be involved in the drive by shooting heading east on Adams street. Police say someone in the SUV opened fire around 2:40 Wednesday morning striking the victim. The shooters also hit a van and an apartment building. Investigators say the 54 year old victim was standing near the building talking to a woman when shots rang out.
    
Stewart was apparently struck in the abdomen and taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. Neighbors say they heard between six and seven shots this morning. It has many of them concerned about the crime in the area.
 
"That mean I gotta go, I'm gone," said Erma Watson.
 
Other neighbors who did not want to be identified spoke out, "We've lived in this neighborhood for 12 years so yes its a little scary, yes there's a lot of things that happen around here that probably should be more closely monitored, but we're safe".
 
Authorities say despite nearly a dozen bullet holes in the side of the apartment building no one inside was hit. If anyone has information this shooting call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
