Murfreesboro, Tennessee (WKRN) – Murfreesboro police are searching for a person who is filling his house with bullets on Monday morning and endangering four people, including three and twelve years old.
“My little baby, my son,” said one man with his son inside at the time of the shooting. The man agreed to go to the camera, but didn’t want to share his name.
Police responded to a house on Courtland Street after hearing multiple shots while a Murfreesboro police officer was patrolling an area near downtown at around 2:40 am. When he arrived, he found more than 20 bullet casings in front of the two houses. One house was struck at least 6 times.
“We are trying to figure out why and who did it,” said an unidentified man with his son inside during the shootout.
Police officers recovered the casings of the two types of bullet shells and made the detective believe that there could have been multiple shooters.
“Sad, upset and angry,” said 12-year-old Travis, who was inside at the time of the shooting. “I was scared.”
“I heard it was around 2:30, but after a few shots of about 6, I died for a while. My heart was still racing, and then about 10 bullets again. It rang and I heard the police coming, “remembered John Stevens, who lives in the neighborhood.
Stevens has lived in the area for nearly two years and said it was something he had never seen before.
“As the owner of the gun myself, it was very clear that it was a gunshot and was approaching,” Stevens said. “This was the first time I heard a gunshot around here. It’s a very quiet street, I love to live here, and it was definitely unusual.”
Responsible persons may face multiple accusations, including reckless danger and property damage. The detective is still trying to find a motive.
