Two teens were shot in East St. Louis Thursday night and residents are sick of the violence.

"[I'm tired] of all the killing and all the shooting,” said 13-year-old Tamyjah Gibson. “We kids, we supposed to go outside and play. That's what outside is made for. Then everybody comes out here and messes it up for all the kids out here.”

The victims were on 44th Street when the shooting occurred before 10 p.m.

"All we heard is shooting," Gibson said. "We ran into her house and they kept saying 'Someone is on the ground! Somebody on the ground!'"

Anton Daniels, 15, died from injuries sustained during the shooting. The other teen, described as a 14-year-old, was listed in stable condition following the shooting.

Police believe the victims and suspects knew one another. The circumstances surrounding the shooting have not been made available.
