Milwaukee shots fired on doorbell camera, mother, kids in home

A Milwaukee doorbell camera captured shots fired on N. 17th Street on Monday, Jan. 16.

The woman who lives in the home said she and her daughter and grandchildren were inside when it happened.  "By the grace of God," she said, no one was hurt.

She said it was the second shooting at her home in less than two months. She and her family were home during both.

On Monday, said the man fired eight shots, and all eight went into her house, including through the living room, hitting the TV and couch.

"All over the front of the house," she said. "I'm just grateful...I didn't go to the door because what would have happened if I did go to the door?"

She said before she knew it, the police were at her front door before she even had an opportunity to call.

She said the incident has left her with a "boatload of emotions" including anger and fear, telling FOX6 News she "can't live here anymore." She said she just purchased the house two years ago, and she's now too scared to stay there.

"I don't know this guy. I don't know if he's coming back," she said. "My peace is disturbed so drastically, I don't know how to live. I'm just living in fear. That's no way to live."

She said the previous incident involved shots fired at the back of her house. She said her neighbors told her the shooter(s) in that instance were young.

She said Monday's incident was "bold," noting it happened in "broad daylight."

"This was just way different for me. He just walked up to the door -- rang the doorbell. Who knows what his intentions were," she said.

"If you know who he is, nobody was hit, but very easily, (my family) could have been hurt or, even worse, killed during this incident for no apparent reason, and things like that just can't happen," she added, asking anyone who knows something to come forward.
