Officer James Klein was responding to a disorder in the 42-hundred block of Fagan Street Saturday night.
As he passed through, the police car was shot at 5 times.
Those in the community told us before that happened, shots were being fired by at least two suspects.
Many in the neighborhood feel these shootings are turf wars and are a growing issue.
"Protecting where they live, people coming here they don't think belong here, people from the West side they don't think should be on the East side, so it's a turf thing".
Police continue to investigate.
Anyone with information on this crime should call the Chattanooga Police Department.
