Shots Fired Into Two Homes Late Sunday; No Serious Injuries Reported

Multiple bullets were fired into a local apartment building late Sunday. Investigators find that one of the bullets grazed a man in the arm, while another bullet traveled through the bedroom of a 7-month old girl in a separate apartment room. Carrollton Police Captain Shannon Cantrell says the preliminary investigation suggests that the shooting was random and the suspects did not have a specific target.
 
Around 10:15 pm Sunday, officers responded to 333 Foster Street, Campus Walk Apartments, in reference to shots fired.
 
One apartment resident showed investigators where a bullet traveled through two of his apartment walls and stopped in the south wall of his 7-month-old daughter`s bedroom.
 
"The mother stated she was sitting in her bedroom, reading a bed time story to her daughter, when she heard a popping sound," Cantrell told WLBB Radio. "She stated she got up and saw the wall in her living room was smoking."
 
Investigators located a second bullet hole on the opposite side of the building.
 
"The male resident of the other apartment room stated he and his wife were watching Netflix in their living room after having dinner. He stated his wife went to bed so he began playing his Xbox gaming console online. He stated that a short time later she heard a
loud noise and immediately felt a sharp pain in his right arm near his elbow," Cantrell explained. "The male then got on the ground and after waiting a short time he got up and checked his right arm and noticed he had a small bruise. He said he immediately called 911."
 
It appears that the bullet traveled through the man's living room and into his kitchen wall.
 
West Georgia Ambulance responded to the scene. The male had no serious injuries.
 
Witnesses told police that they heard 3 gunshots and a car squealing its tires before leaving the area.
 
Anyone with information on this incident should contact Carrollton Police immediately.
