Posted: Updated:

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - A drive by shooting on the city's northside jolts a family from their sleep. Their home was pierced with bullets leaving them scared, shaken and anxious for police to catch the shooter.

Amy Aguilar, home hit by bullets, says, "My daughter and her girlfriend were right here and they were sleeping right above their head it hid...glad nobody got hurt...I'm scared."

She also says her family dropped to the floor when they heard the shots. Her husband ran outside to see what was going on but didn't see anything or anyone. Police were called out and found several bullet casings.

"I'm scared now you know. It's like I'm not sure if I am going to be able to sleep at night just thinking if someone is going to try and shoot at us again," says Aguilar.

If anyone has information, call Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS.
