PORTSMOUTH -- "I grabbed my babies, and I ran out the door," said Ashley Marcus, who was napping in her home when she heard an explosion of gunfire in Lincoln Park Sunday afternoon.

The shootout happened just after 2:00 p.m. near the intersection of Lexington Drive and Columbus Avenue. Several bullets hit buildings in the neighborhood, including Marcus' home.

"It startled me a little bit, but I'll be all right. As long as my kids are okay, I'm good," Marcus told 13News Now.

Neighbors said two men were arguing, then started shooting at each other.

No one was hurt during the shooting.
