News784 broke the news but did not get the necessary information last evening to publish a story.
The family said they are not sure as to why their home was targeted; one window was broken from the shots that were fired at the house.
Inesha Mack told news784 that her mom and grandkids usually sleep in the room where the window was shattered , but said something told her not to sleep there last evening.
She further told NEWS784 that it was early this morning they discovered that their house was indeed the target.
Currently, two adults live in the home along with three kids. Family members say the safety and security of their life have been compromised and as such don’t feel safe in their own home anymore.
Despite the event and the current emotions, the family says all praises to God, since it could have been worst.
