“We get up and investigated. And sure enough, there were bullet holes that traveled through the whole house,” he said.
Damage shows where a bullet appeared to have gone through the room his daughter was in. It blew a hole in the other wall, through the hallway, and into the ceiling above their garage where it hit a water line.
