Bullets found in sides of homes in Biddleville and Smallwood neighborhoods after 4th of July

- A bullet hole here, another one over in another home, but all found in the sides of homes in the Biddleville and Smallwood neighborhoods after the 4th of July celebration.

"We actually have a bullet hole in our garage. Our neighbor has a bullet hole in his garage. Another neighbor had one in his porch roof which actually caused a leak. They had to get theirs repaired and mine needs to be filled but they are all from bullets coming back down from up above," a woman that wanted to remain anonymous said.

Our FOX 46 Charlotte cameras caught one bullet still lodged into the side this garage and casing still in the roads.

"It’s not the most comforting thing for sure knowing that bullets are falling out of the sky and they can seriously hurt a person," a woman that wanted to remain anonymous said.

Neighbors in these areas are not sure exactly where these stray bullets are coming from.

"Is it happening in the front of the street of my house? No. Maybe it's a couple streets over, maybe it’s a couple neighborhoods over but it's in the neighborhood. It's close," a woman that wanted to remain anonymous said.

People in the Biddleville and Smallwood neighborhoods tell FOX 46 that the sound of gunfire can be heard every so often during holidays.

"You know there could be some on the roof that I don't know about but this is the first visible one,” a woman that wanted to remain anonymous said.

They say they’ve grown to live with is and it's become part of their transitional neighborhood.

The positive, is they know their neighbors well and stick together to solves this issues and that is what brings them together.

"We encourage neighbors to call because what that does is to encourage police to do more patrols and that is always a positive thing," a woman that wanted to remain anonymous said.

Police can't pin-point who is doing the shooting but folks living here are tired and want people to know someone may get hurt next time.

"These bullets don't disappear into nowhere. Maybe it's fun and cool for you but they got to go somewhere and it's usually into people property and hopefully not into anyone or anything that can get hurt," a woman that wanted to remain anonymous said.
