Just wanted to let you that last night at around 10:30 a BB gun was
fired through one of our large front of the house windows. While only
a BB, it went straight through the window and could easily have
When the police arrived (an hour and a half later) the officers
explained the extreme delay was due to the fact that whomever shot our
house was driving around the neighborhood shooting some other homes as
well. Apparently, they've been up to this for about 2 weeks.
Hopefully, this won't happen to anyone else. However, in the event it
does, it is imperative that and unusual "rock hitting the window"
sound be quickly investigated. Look for a small hole in any windows.
Better, look immediately to the street for the car which is most
likely shooting on the go. Then, call 911 immediately. The police said
calling quickly could help pinpoint where these losers are heading and
their most likely getaway route.
Thank you. I hope we can catch these people.

The back of our car was shot at on Sunday night as well. I have
reported this to the police. The police believe there is a ring of
vandals targeting the neighborhood.
