Bullets Riddle Nashville Couple's Home
by Aundrea Cline-Thomas
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A Nashville couple narrowly missed an onslaught of bullets aimed at their home.
"We were sitting here watching some TV, just Netflix and it was just loud noises," one of the homeowners, who asked that we not reveal his name, said. "It was happening really fast."
A quiet movie night was interrupted by gunfire.
"You can see the hole," the man said pointed to a hole behind his couch. "So it came from up the street, it came through here."
Around 10 p.m. Friday, nearly a dozen bullets were aimed at their home on Buena Vista Pike.
"The angles from (the bullet) went right by my head," he said.
Each shot came inches, in many cases even closer, to where the couple was.
"So the bullet went into the mattress," the wife explained.
Some of the bullets continued through the living room, tore through the bedroom and didn't stop until exiting through the back wall.
"(It) got that window and one went through this lamp shade here, through the back and through the wall," he said while showing the visible holes.
"It seems like an intentional message," the wife stressed. "And I think they got the wrong house."
Just two hours earlier, there was a shooting in the neighborhood around Kings Lane, which is just half a mile from the couple's house. But they still don't know if both incidents are related.
The homeowners are not new to the area. They said they're quiet and don't know why they were targeted.
"Not that I think anyone deserves to have this type of message delivered to them, but this was the wrong house," she said.
They're still shaken but grateful that they escaped the ordeal, unharmed.
"We had some divine protection."
Police continue to investigate the shooting and have not made any connections to the other shooting in the neighborhood. If you have any information, call Crimestoppers at 74-CRIME.
