The Juarez bullets that crossed the border are raising concern with the neighbors in the area. Knowing that bullets can travel far, many wonder if they're really safe in El Paso.
A neighbor, Saul Lucero said, "It is scary because here in the U.S. you feel safer than in Mexico, it is also scary for the children and what can happen to them."
Some say that looking at the bridge every day from their home is a constant reminder of the dangers on the other side.
Some neighbors said that they should probably buy bullet proof glass for their windows, but not even that is fool-proof.
"We should but we probably won't," Lucero said. "We just ask God to protect us from anything bad that could happen to us"
Lucero only sees one solution.
"There should be more security here in the U.S.," Lucero said.
Until then, all neighbors in the area said they can do is wait and hope for the best.
